Celebrating Academic Excellence & Student Learning

 
Messiah students achieve excellence in their academics, while also intentionally surrounded by the love of Jesus throughout their day. Messiah utilizes the NWEA MAP test to assess academic progress and help students, parents, and teachers set individualized growth plans.  While we value individual student growth (LEARNING) over and above test scores (PERFORMANCE), it is helpful to know how Messiah students measure up. We think you will agree — Messiah students excel!

How does this data compare to the NeSA scores that I see from local public schools?

NWEA provides proficiency alignments to NeSA and Nebraska state standards. Download a copy of the linking study here.
 
NWEA also provides an “ACT College Readiness” measure for 5th graders. Download a copy of that study here.
