The school follows the rigorous Indiana Academic Standards. Students are assessed through the ISTEP+, IMAST,and ISTAR assessments given to all the students in the state of Indiana. In addition students are tested twice a year using the Northwest Evaluation Association (NWEA) test to determine academic growth across the school year.
