Achieving Academic Excellence
St. Catherine Labouré School sets the standard for academic excellence, encourages and praises meaningful achievement, and fosters lifelong learning, while empowering students to reach their fullest potential. Our students regularly score above average on standardized testing, and the majority of our eighth graders are accepted into their first choice high schools.
It is our mission to develop the whole student: in mind, body, and soul, with skills, knowledge, and values needed for life.
The following standardized tests are administered at St. Catherine Labouré:
- The Iowa Test of Basic Skills battery of achievement tests is administered to all students in grades Two through Eight annually in the fall.
- The Iowa Test of Basic Skills (cognitive ability) is administered to students in grades Four, Six, and Eight annually in the fall.
- The KIDS (Kindergarten Inventory of Developmental Skills) Test is administered prior to entrance into Kindergarten.
- The ACREsurvey (Assessment of Catechesis/Religious Education), given in grades Five and Eight, helps the school and parish evaluate the faith knowledge and attitudes of students in a Catholic school.
In addition to the group and individual tests given at the school, testing by an outside agency may be recommended.
