As a private school we are not required to administer AIMS.  However, each spring students in grades K-8 take a national standardized test (Stanford 10 or Terra Nova).  High school students are encouraged and prepped for the SAT.  In recent years, our students have scored well above the national average in math (74th percentile) and reading (72nd percentile).  The national average is the 50th percentile.
