Using some of the most innovative and cutting-edge technology and resources, our Middle School staff strive to engage students and challenge them to become the best they can be in all aspects of their lives. Student learning is a major focus and the goal of every teacher is to best prepare students for life in the 21st century. This involves:
- Strong personal connection to students
- Discovering each student's learning style
- Meeting each student where they are to help move them to the next level
Students in grades 1-8 participate in standardized testing every spring. Up through the 2010-2011 school year, CHC administered the Stanford 10 achievement test. Beginning in the 2011-2012 school year, we administered the Terra Nova test.
CHC is a member school of the Association of Christian Schools International. We align our standardized testing with ACSI. The Terra Nova test is widely used and allows us to compare our scores to over one million students nationwide as well as other Christian schools nationwide. (Our standardized testing is different from Colorado public schools' CMAS test and cannot be compared test to test.)
The scores on the following downloadable PDF's represent our student's national percentile ranking. These scores are NOT the percentage of correct answers, but rather how our students rank against other students in the nation. For example, a score of 75 in reading means that students are in the top 25 percent of reading scores in the nation.
We are proud of our students who consistently score considerably above the national average with scores in the top 25 percent or greater in the nation.
*Stanford 10 and Terra Nova testing and scoring is different from CSAP and cannot be compared test to test.
