Achieving Academic Success Without the STAAR

At 4Points Academy we do not administer the STAAR test. Instead our teachers focus on providing true individualized instruction based on the academic abilities of our student. We believe that performance on a single, high-pressure, exam is not the best indicator of student’s ability, knowledge, or their academic placement.

4Points Academy provides an individualized learning path for each child, that includes periodic feedback on what each child is learning. Our methodology ensures the child learns the content, all without the high pressure of and/or focus towards a single standardize test.
