Students in Kindergarten through 9th grade participated in the assessment.

“Clarksville Christian School is committed to academic excellence, and our four year history of Stanford data shows that we are an effective school,” said Lisa Tucker, Head of School for Clarksville Christian School. “Our goal of exceeding Common Core Standards while infusing the academic day with Biblical truths is not only relevant, but is essential to equipping students for righteous Christian living in their adult lives.”

Stanford Achievement tests are considered the benchmark of excellence in standardized achievement tests, and are utilized by school districts in the United States for assessing children from kindergarten through high school.
