Assessments & Reports

Alternative assessments and frequent progress monitoring are important components of our reporting process.

We engage in continuous performance assessment but we do not give grades until Junior year (for college bound students).

Students receive regular formal and informal curriculum-based assessments throughout the year.

Detailed and prompt teacher feedback is provided on assignments, which increases engagement and accountability.

Weekly narrative reports are provided to parents and treatment team members, including community professionals if so desired.

Formal narrative evaluations are provided two times per year which detail student progress in much greater depth than a single letter grade.

The Head of School and Clinical Psychologist meet on a weekly basis with each teacher to review progress in a train-the-trainer setting.

We conduct weekly case conference meetings with the faculty to discuss the progress of each student.
