The perfect score in the California Standards Test is 600.

Manteca Unified had 127 students hitting that mark, with 63 receiving recognition at last Tuesday’s school board meeting.

The other half of the group will be honored at the Nov. 16 meeting.  

Three had the distinction of achieving the 600 score in two subjects, including Charlie Zhang. The Great Valley School fifth-grade student had perfect CSTs in math and science.

The state Department of Education exams include English / language and math for second- through 11th- grade students; science for fifth, eighth, and ninth through 11th graders;  and history / social science for eighth-, and 10th- and 11th-grade students.

According to the district office, the CSTs show how students locally are doing in relation to the state content standards.
