Assessment and Evaluation
Growing through Assessment
Students’ learning is gauged on their current level of understanding and application of particular learning standards. Teachers identify foundational standards that are critical to student success for each class and grade level. Curriculum standards guide teachers in content selection, instruction methods, and activities. Student understanding and application of each standard are assessed based on rubrics, formative assessments, and performance level descriptors.
Academic Support Programs
Students are supported academically in all core subjects plus English language skills for emerging bilingual students and Psychological Counseling Service. Our Academic Support Programs ensure that all students have equitable access to learning, opportunities for achievement, and the pursuit of excellence in all aspects of their educational programs.
