Prepare Your Students for State Testing

Many of our students will participate in state testing this spring. Participation is important because results help students, parents and teachers understand whether students have mastered the content they need to know by the end of the school year to be on track for college and career success. Please help your students prepare to do their very best on these upcoming assessments.

Prepare a sus hijos para las pruebas estatales

Muchos de nuestros estudiantes participarán en las pruebas estatales durante esta primavera. La participación es importante porque los resultados ayudan a los estudiantes, padres de familia y maestros, a comprender si los estudiantes han dominado los contenidos que deben saber para el final del año escolar, para así estar preparados para el camino a la universidad y una carrera.  Por favor ayuden a sus hijos a prepararse y que tengan su mejor desempeño en las pruebas que vienen.

Kenton in the NEWS:    Kenton's Vision All Kenton students will make a yearly minimum of one year’s growth in language, reading, writing, and math. In addition, all Kenton students who have been in APS since 1st grade will leave 5th grade on grade level in literacy and math. At Kenton we work so that all students can achieve success and can say confidently,
  • "I am valued and feel valued."
  • "I set high social and academic standards to acquire the skills I need."
  • "I take pride in who I am and show respect for others."
  • "I make positive contributions to the Kenton Community."
  • "I build a vision for all I can be and what I can do."
"It takes a village ... to raise a child."
