FastBridge Assessments

All information sent to student school email and Learning Coach Email

As part of the ISMN initiative this year to focus on Reading and Math, we are asking you to take the Fast Bridge assessments called aReading and aMath. With this data, Math and English teachers will get an accurate picture of your Math and Reading ability which will better assist them in working with you. Each assessment should not take more than 30 minutes with some students completing in less than 20 minutes. We are asking you take your time and answer the questions to the best of your ability. If possible, please complete this assessment prior to the first day of school which is on Monday, September 10, 2018.


The login can be found here.
The username and password will be sent by Head of School, John Huber.
6th-8th graders take aMath & aReading, while 9th-12th graders take aReading (look for future information about math tests).


Any questions regarding this, please contact our office at 763-656-2800
