Our Students’ Academics

Academic programming is a key priority at SSMS.  Our staff and faculty are always striving to enhance our program and academic instruction so our students make a seamless transition to high school.

Every year students in grades 4th through 8th take the Stanford national standardized test, enabling us to further assess our academic successes.

We have just received our results from this year’s tests.

To summarize, 5th and 6th grades are rated 2.8 and 2.7 years ahead of national grade level respectively. 5th is performing at a grade 7.8 level and 6th at 8.7 level. Our 7th grade students are 4.5 years ahead of national grade level performing at grade 11.5!

The following tables illustrate SSMS students’ achievements by grade and then by subject within each grade.
