 STAR Scores


Thank you to all our amazing students who worked hard on their STAR assessments last week! Across every grade level, our scores showed significant student growth. This report compares our middle school student’s scores (the blue diamond) with the state recommended pathway for student proficiency (the green line and star). Thank you students and teachers for continuing to “RISE UP” and always do your best!
