WORK toward personal high academic goals
Achieve Language Academy adheres to the Minnesota State Standards for its curriculum and assessments. Testing is used in schools to measure student achievement. Achieve staff give tests that may include quizzes, pretests, chapter tests, and final exams. State tests are given to students at Achieve once a year, based on their grade level and subject area. Both state and school tests give our staff an idea of how well students are learning concepts.
