Physical Fitness Testing
Physical Fitness is assessed in grades 5 and 7 each school year in accordance with State mandates.
The physical fitness test designated for California public students is the FITNESSGRAM, developed by The Cooper Institute. The test assesses six major fitness areas, including:
- aerobic capacity (cardiovascular endurance)
- body composition (percentage of body fat)
- abdominal strength and endurance
- trunk strength and flexibility
- upper body strength and endurance
- overall flexibility
A number of test options are provided so that most students can participate.

The purpose of the CAHSEE is to help improve student achievement in high school and make sure that graduates meet identified state content standards in reading, writing, and mathematics.
The Academic Performance Index (API) measures performance and progress of a school. It is a numeric index or scale that ranges from a low of 200 to a high of 1000. The state has set 800 as the API score that schools should strive to meet. Schools that fall short of the target will be required to meet annual growth targets until their goal is achieved. Schools that already meet or exceed the 800 API should continue working to improve the academic performance of all students. Results of the norm-referenced test and California Standards Tests, given in the spring as part of the state's Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) program, are used to calculate a school's API.
