Achievement Testing (K5 - 11)
Every year in the spring a nationally recognized standardized achievement test is administered to all students in grades K5-11. While it is not the only way to assess our school, it is an important method of evaluating our students, the scope/sequence/content of our curriculum, and our teachers.
College Testing (Seniors)
In lieu of taking achievement tests, the senior class is required to take the ACT or SAT college entrance test. Seniors must register for the test on their own and meet the financial obligations. It is highly recommended that this process be handled at the beginning of the school year. While there are several dates from which to choose, students are strongly advised to register for the April test date. Research suggests that students perform better at this time of the school year since they have completed most of their coursework for the twelfth grade. Seniors will not receive a diploma until the school receives the test results.
