Assessment & Placement
New students at Star Academy are given a thorough educational assessment to determine appropriate service levels and class placement.
Prior to, or at, the start of the school year, all new incoming Star Academy students undergo comprehensive testing by our in-house specialists so that we may develop an appropriate education plan for each student. This assessement helps Star Academy determine the type and intensity of specialist services needed, if any. It also helps determine the appropriate math and reading groups for the student as well as homeroom class placement, among others.
Educational testing is repeated again at the end of the first year for all new students. After the first year, all students will be formally tested triennially. In this way, we are able to track, measure and assess each student's progress and refine their individual education program for maximum impact.
