A third event that took place is the implementation of the standardized Toefl test that took place this week for the upper junior grades 3-6. As for grades 7&8 the test took place Feb 23.
These tests not only measure information, but can change how students access information.
Studies show that the best way to remember information, are tests and quizzes, after which teacher give immediate feedback. Let us help our students succeed, let us motivate them, let us provide extracurricular activities that engaged them and create relatedness.
*Our Motto is motivation with its4 key components: Competence, autonomy/ control, interest/value & relatedness. Let each quarter end up better than the previous.
