At Calvary Lutheran School, students are encouraged to be creative thinkers, problem solvers, and meaningful contributors to our society. Calvary’s well-rounded K-8 curriculum focuses on religion, math, language arts, science, visual arts, music, physical education, and foreign language. As a benefit of our smaller class sizes and close-knit student/teacher/parent relationships, our students enjoy individualized attention and collaborative learning with their peers — the perfect formula for future success.
Reaching Academic Goals
Measuring Academic Achievement
In addition to regular assessments throughout the school year, students participate in Stanford Achievement Tests annually to assess their progress in relation to national norms and standards. These tests measure mastery of basic skills in the following areas: vocabulary, reading comprehension, math problem solving, math procedures, language mechanics, language expression, spelling, study skills, science, social sciences, listening, using information, and thinking skills.
