Hello and welcome back for the Spring 2023 semester!  This semester is shaping up to be as busy as the first.  An item that keeps our school very busy this semester is SAT and state CMAS testing. 

We are excited to see all of your hard work pay dividends this spring and are in full swing of planning testing locations and coordinating proctors (your teachers) throughout the state.  In order to most effectively do this, we need to know if you are planning to participate in state testing this April.  Our goal as a school is to make this process as easy as possible for our families.  

Here is what we know:

  • The CMAS test window is open April 10 - 27

    • All students in grades 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 11

    • Grades 3 - 8 complete ELA and Math CMAS

    • Grades 5, 8, and 11 complete Science CMAS

  • PSAT test dates will be April 12, 13, 14, 25, 26, or 27

    • 9th and 10th grade students only

    • PSAT will build off CMAS from prior years and prepare students for SAT

  • SAT administration will take place on April 12 or 25

Why is Your Participation Important?

  • Our school is proud of what we do - it takes your results for us to continue to grow our school and curriculum.

  • Students MVOLA are the best!  Over the years, test participation has been a very small percentage of our student population.  Our goal is to have over 90% participation.

  • MVOLA students historically perform well on standardized tests…we want to know what you know.
