CONGRATULATIONS TO STUDENTS AND STAFF FOR ALL OF THEIR HARD WORK THIS YEAR IN IMPROVING TEST SCORES ON THE STATE TEST (SMARTER BALANCED ASSESSMENT). THE INCREASES WERE SIGNIFICANT. ESPECIALLY NOTEWORTHY IS THAT 85% OF ALL 11TH GRADES MET OR EXCEEDED STANDARDS IN ENGLISH LANGUAGE ARTS. UNDER THE NEW TESTING SYSTEM, MATH AND ELA ARE NOT JUST REPRESENTATIVE OF THE WORK DONE IN MATH AND ENGLISH COURSES, BUT INSTEAD ARE A REFLECTION OF COURSEWORK IN ALL CLASSES.
