Tennyson Knolls Prep Friday Update

9/3/2021

A note from Admin:

Hello TKP Families!


This week we finished up all of our beginning of year testing! It was great to see student's trying their hardest to show what they know! WPS is a Competency Based System, we are always working to make sure that students are receiving the best instruction for their ability levels. After looking at data it is normal in our system to move students to the placement that is best for their level. The wonderful thing about our system is that as student's progress we are able to move student's to the classroom that best fits their needs!

Thank you for your understanding.


Molly Mojden and Stephanie Fick
