AZMERIT Testing Begins
Students in grades 3 through 6 will take the AZ MERIT Assessment. The AZ MERIT is designed to assess student performance and understanding of the grade level standards. 4th grade will also take AIMS Science on March 30th.
It is important that children get a good night's sleep, arrive at school on time, and that they eat a healthy breakfast each morning. Please encourage your child to try his/her best on each test. Students who are absent for testing will be required to make-up any portion of the test that they miss. We ask that you plan appointments outside of school hours.
