CMAS Testing

The state test, CMAS, is very important to Cimarron Middle School. When families look to move into our community, the first consideration before buying a house is the performance of the schools. Cimarron MIddle School is scored on the growth and achievement of the state assessment. When our enrollment is up, we get better funding to provide our students with the best experiences possible. Our staff uses these scores to guide curricular resources and programming for our students.

We are proud of the 91.2% of students that took this assessment last year. We are grateful for the way our community prioritizes education and hope to continue to have an outstanding high rate of participation. This prepares students for standardized testing in their future, including college readiness assessments or a standardized assessment for the career students choose.

If you choose to not have your student take this assessment, you will need to first set up a meeting with the grade level assistant principal. At this meeting we want to gain understanding of your reasoning, as well as talk about the importance of this assessment. This process for excusal is available until December 2nd to opt out of the state assessment (CMAS). Meaning meetings with the grade level AP will need to take place before this deadline date. There will not be any excusals past this date.
