Achievement tests are administered annually to all
children in kindergarten through fifth grade during the month of April. Make-up
testing is administered only in the case of absence due to illness or
emergency, and then only at the discretion of the director. The average scores
of NAPS students are consistently above the national average.
Report cards are issued four times a year for students
in kindergarten through fifth grade while progress reports are issued twice a
year for pre-kindergarten students. Parents are asked to sign the report card
after each of the first three marking periods and return it to school promptly.
Individual parent-teacher conferences are held for all classes in the fall.
Parents of pre-kindergartners meet with the teacher again in the spring to
discuss their childs developmental progress.
