NJ, HTS, NAEP and the PARCC…

Dear HTS Community:

The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), often called the Nation’s Report Card, is given every two years and tests students in grades four, eight and twelve in all 50 states in both Math and Reading. The 2013 results have been released. As always, New Jersey’s public schools have excelled. Some highlights:

  • Fourth Grade Math – New Jersey 4th in nation
  • Fourth Grade Reading – New Jersey tied for 2nd in nation
  • Eighth Grade Math – New Jersey 2nd in nation
  • Eighth Grade Reading – New Jersey tied for 1st in nation

Lastly, in our continued efforts to transition to the PARCC, we are going to play a lightning round of, “Are You Smarter Than a Third Grader?” Please read this passage and answer these questions. For an example of a sample Grade 6 Math question, please click here. As always, thank you for supporting our efforts to become to premier PK-8 public school district in New Jersey.

Sincerely,

Alex Anemone
