Unlike 150 schools that were facing investigations regarding academic dishonesty on the California Standardized Testing and Reporting tests, Carlmont did not have any cases of cheating.

Schools faced with those investigations may not get an Academic Performance Index score, thus possibly losing specific funding for not reaching set improvement goals.

Principal Raul Zamora claimed that because “our families and students work together with teachers,” Carlmont has avoided having any cheating.

According to a CNN Special Report on March 25, 2012, schools across the country have been suspected of cheating. CNN claimed “suspicious score increases, high numbers of erasures and other irregularities were uncovered in about 200 school districts.”

The pressures of the No Child Left Behind and more competition for a spot into college may have attributed to the upswing in cheating on standardized test.

Sophomore Elizabeth Staton reasoned Carlmont did not have cheating issues because “we want to try hard for ourselves and see how high we  can score.”

If cheating were to arise within the school, Zamora said that he would take it “case by case” and “hopes our teachers and students” will do their part in preventing cheating.
