Campbell Union High School District Students Score Above County Average on State Assessment

Almost three-quarters of students (72%) in Campbell Union High School District (CUHSD) met or exceeded state standards in English language arts (ELA) on last year’s California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP).

In comparison, 68% of high school students in Santa Clara County met or exceeded state standards for ELA.

“We’re proud of the work that our teachers and staff have done to put us above the county average in English language arts and literacy,” said CUHSD Superintendent Robert Bravo.

Meanwhile, the same percentage of CUHSD students (49%) met or exceeded state standards in math as the rest of the county's high school students (49%).

Last year, 70% of CUHSD students met or exceeded state standards in ELA, while only 45% of students met or exceeded state math standards.

“We still have some work to do in math,” said Mary Streshly, CUHSD’s assistant superintendent of educational services, “and we also want to make sure to strengthen our support for English language learners, but overall it looks like we’re moving forward.”

The high schools that saw the largest improvements in ELA scores were Branham and Prospect, while Westmont and Prospect experienced the largest gains in math.

The district’s two largest demographic subgroups, whites and Latinos, also made advancements in ELA and math performance.

The CAASPP replaced the Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) system in 2014.

It’s an online test based on California’s new Common Core Standards, which help students develop their critical thinking, problem solving, and writing skills in preparation for college or work.

Statewide, more than three million students in 11th grade and in grades three through eight took the CAASPP.
