• Question: Will any of the day be spent preparing for standardized tests?
    Answer: The new standardized tests are different from TAKS in that they are geared towards more rigorous instruction and student mastery of objectives and standards. As our instruction will cover the required state objectives, our students will naturally be equipped to succeed on the STAAR test. Students will be made familiar with the format, and also taught the core content terminology in both languages, but we will avoid the dreaded "drill and kill" method of standardized test preparation.
