Aspire Testing

Your child will be taking ACT Aspire assessments for 3rd- 10th grades. The valuable data we gain from these assessments

allows us to make evidence-based decisions when addressing your child’s strengths, areas

for improvement, and growth potential. This can give you an early indication of his or her likely readiness for the future,

providing time to address areas where improvement is needed.

Measuring academic growth is necessary to keep your child on track for college and career readiness. Our students 

rise to the challenge and we ask you to encourage your child to do their best and get plenty of sleep the night before 

and eat a good breakfast. Test start promptly at 8:10, please make sure your student arrives to school on time. 

Students will not be able to enter the classroom if testing has begun.
