HIGH SCHOOL PLACEMENT TEST RESULTS

Congratulations to our 8th grade students on scoring so well on the High School Placement Test! The graph shows that our students tested well above the Archdiocese of Cincinnati averages; in all subject areas! The 74 percentile for St. Francis de Sales means that our 8th grade students tested better than 74% of all students who took the High School Placement test. Congratulations, again, to the 8th grade class!
