Students attend half-hour weekly chapel services on Monday mornings.  Chapel includes singing, scripture, and a creative biblical presentation by a member of the faculty, staff, area pastors or others that have been invited to participate by the administrator. Pre-Academy students join the Academy for Chapel the first Monday of the month. Parents are welcome to attend.

Iowa Assessment Proficiency Totals for Spring of 2014

The following chart shows combined average data by class.  I am very pleased with that data and am encouraged by the hard work of our teachers and students.

Here are some abbreviations and what they mean

  • NSS – National Standard Score is a number based on an achievement continuum from elementary through high school 
  • NPR – National Percentile Rank describes the percent of students in the same grade who obtained a lower score
  • NGE – National Grade Equivalent describes student performance in terms of grade level and month

(Example:  we gave the test at the beginning of April so a 4th grade student would reflect a number of 4.7 – 4th grade seventh month since September.  Any number above 4.7 would be above the National Grade Equivalent.
