What is an adaptive diagnostic?

Adaptive Diagnostics are tools that provides a customized evaluation of every student and tracks students’ growth and performance consistently and continuously over a student’s entire K–12 career.

Based on the Diagnostic results, i-Ready automatically provides individualized online and teacher-led instruction targeted to each student’s unique needs. In addition, easy-to-read reports provide teachers with a detailed action plan for individual and group instruction and the tools to deliver that instruction in any style learning environment.

Please make sure students are well rested, eat a good breakfast, and an emphasis is placed the importance of putting forth their very best effort during testing. In addition, please make sure your child has a pair of headphones available at school to use during testing.

Club Spotlight!

Orchestra Club Lead by Mr. Echevarria

In Orchestra Club, students learn to be good musicians but also a child with excellent values ​​towards music and fine arts. Students are not only taught the varied musical notes, they also learn how to work with a team, in a fun way, without detracting from the importance and discipline that is required to play an instrument. Those techniques are used to develop the student's ability to sight read and memorize musical pieces. Students then have the opportunity to perform at different extracurricular activities and events.
