Each Spring, all students in Grades 3-8 participate in the statewide academic achievement test. The test, Arizona’s Academic Standards Assessment (AASA), measures a student’s mastery of the standards in two subjects: Math and English Language Arts (Reading and Writing). This year we had 67 students across the district who received a perfect score in at least one of the tested areas.
At last week’s Governing Board meeting, we recognized three students whose achievements on this test set them apart from the others: Viviana Alvarado (Grade 5) received a perfect score in both Math and ELA. Patrick Minh (Grade 8) and Emilyse Winter (Grade 8) both received a perfect score in the Math section for the last four years. All three of these students attend Vista del Sur.
