• Assessments
    Throughout the school year, our students participate in different assessments aimed at answering the question on every teacher, administrator, and parent’s mind…“Are our children 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 admissions and secure scholarship opportunities. Keeping track of the different tests and requirements can be challenging, so we’ve created the following timeline as a reference for our students and their parents. Our School Counselors are available to work directly with students to answer questions and develop a personal assessment calendar.
