Do you do standardized testing?
Each October, students from Grades 1 to 8 complete the Canadian Achievement Tests (CAT 4). We believe the CAT 4 tests provide individualized, highly informative and timely results that allow us to assess each child’s strengths and weaknesses and thereby allow their teachers to better meet a child’s needs.
Each year, the majority of our students consistently perform at levels one to two grades higher than the Canadian averages. Click to view – Canadian Achievement test results 2015.
