Please see listing for room assignments for the ASPIRE test tomorrow:
Tomorrow marks an important day for EHS Freshmen; we are testing all 9th graders using the ASPIRE test, developed through ACT. This test is administered to provide data regarding a student's proximity to ACT benchmarks. It is directly aligned with ACT and is an important, 1st step on your child's path to college choice.
This data provides specific feedback regarding areas of challenge, as well as accelerated learning. This data is used in part, to determine what courses are appropriate to support individual student learning.
In the past, 8th grade students took the Explore test, which provided similar data. ACT discontinued this test and replaced it with ASPIRE taken during 9th grade. This data is statistically more reliable for comparison to ACT benchmarks, and therefore provides a more accurate reflection of academic progress.
If you have any questions, please let us know.

If you consider yourself an informed citizen, you are aware of a national effort to improve STEM Education throughout the United States. President Obama asked public educators to make improvements in STEM education so that America’s students are able to compete in the global community.
Across the U.S., districts are answering that call to enable all students to learn deeply and think critically in science and math. As Rockwood works to improve programs supporting STEM education, we are asking our community to help us, help our kids.
Hear our Superintendent, Dr. Eric Knost speak to this issue and how PROP 4 will support the STEM initiative by redesigning learning environments in science. http://tinyurl.com/pu7ljd3
