Student Assessments

To prepare our students for success in college, career, and life, we have set the bar high. The PARCC assessment is computer-based and matches the high expectations of the Common Core standards, requiring students to think critically and solve real-world problems.

Students in grades 3–8 and students enrolled in Algebra I, Geometry, and English I & II will take the PARCC test. The PARCC test assesses what your child is learning in school and helps teachers and parents know if students are on track for success in college and careers.
