Throughout the school year, students participate in different assessments aimed at answering the question on every teacher, administrator, and parent’s mind…“Are my students learning?” The results help ensure each child is getting the instruction and knowledge they need to be successful in the classroom and in their futures.
Some assessments, such as the MCAS tests, determine a student’s ability to graduate while others, such as the SAT or ACT, help students gain college admission and secure scholarship opportunities. Throughout the year our faculty and staff will be available to help you and your child be aware of testing dates, register for the different assessments, and prepare for the exam with a variety of test-taking skills.
