Michigan Testing

State assessments, are ever changing and we are in transition to the SAT as our state test as well as other assessments that will be used to measure the success of our students. 

The M-step also provides teachers with important information about how their students are doing and assists teachers in getting struggling students the academic support they need. All of this will help students get a better education and succeed in college or the workplace.

Testing for statewide assessments will take place shortly after spring break.
