2018 MCAS results
Springfield Prep students and teachers are off to a great start. On the 2018 MCAS, our first year of state testing, Springfield Prep scholars shined bright, leading in a state that leads the nation in educational performance.
Our scholars are many things - readers, artists, athletes, mathematicians, dancers, and musicians - and cannot be easily defined by any one test. But the MCAS, a challenging test which assesses the ability to do rigorous math, read complex texts, and communicate through writing, is an important benchmark. It helps us answer these questions: Are our students well prepared academically? And: Are we doing all we can to help support them?
We couldn’t be more proud of our students and we’re excited for the opportunities academic successes like these create.
