The Atlantic City School District will be taking part in New Jersey's annual assessment during the month of March. The State of New Jersey will be taking the PARCC assessment for the first time this year. The schedule is as follows:
  • April 5th to April 12th (7th & 8th grades)
  • April 13th to April 21st (5th & 6th grades)
  • April 22nd to May 2nd (3rd and 4th grades)


Annual assessments are an important part of today's school environment. The tests provide valuable data that helps teachers and the district support our students academically. Uptown School needs your support during this important testing period! Here are some things parents and guardians can do:

  • make sure your son/daughter attends school each day during their testing week
  • make sure your son/daughter gets a good night's sleep during the testing week
  • talk to him/her about the importance of the PARCC test and about giving their best effort
