Nevertheless, the impact of individualized instruction is reflected by the substantial increase in our 2014-2015 MAP test results. We were excited to report that 50% of our 3rd grade students score proficient/advanced in both English/Language Arts and Math. We are working with great determination to make sure our students continually achieve, and we know that many will be watching our outcomes.
