Standardized test scores are not the only measure of a school’s quality. These tests are designed to assess an individual student’s performance compared to all students nationally. They do not compare a school’s quality to other schools. Many other factors should affect your decision about which school your child should attend, including: educational philosophy, curriculum quality, teacher credentials, class size, location, cost, availability of resources, discipline policy, opportunities for parental involvement and communications.
Archbishop Borders School employs a number of different tests in order to inform instruction, gauge student mastery of material, and plan our school-wide continuous improvement strategies. Questions about these tests may be directed to the Principal or Dual Language Program Director.
