Standardized Testing

Students in K-8 take 3 sessions of the NWEA’s online MAP (Measures of Academic Progress) assessment suite for Reading, Language, Math and Science. MAP dynamically adapts to a student's responses as they take the test, narrowing in on a student's learning level and engaging them with content that allows them to succeed.  Our students have seen personal growth in all areas!

Eigth grade students also take the EXPLORE test (part of the ACT).
