Markham Middle School CST scores are up!

Markham Middle School increased 8 percent of students scoring proficient or above on both the English and math sections on the California Standards Test (CST) from the 2010-2011 to the 2011-2012 school year. Last year’s statistics state that 15 percent of students scored proficient or above in math and 19 percent scored proficient or above in English. Now, 23 percent of students scored proficient or above in math and 27 percent in English. Eight percent may be a small number, but to us it’s a huge gain! I may not agree with standardized tests, but it looks like all the emphasis my team and the school placed on the CST really helped and Markham can only benefit from this. My team and many teachers worked very hard last year to prepare our students for this test and the hard work paid off. This news made my week and gives me faith that Markham can keep improving (and therefore, get more funding!) Maybe when I come back into the states in two years Markham will make double-digit increases in test scores. Good job students!

So proud! Go Watts go!

We made our mark at Markham,
