Measures of Success

MSA uses rigorous assessment tools to evaluate the academic performance of our students relative to their peers at both public and independent schools nationwide.  To date, the results are highly encouraging.  MSA students demonstrate academic results that significantly exceed national public school averages and are competitive with private institutions.

MAP Assessments

Our students grades K-5th are evaluated using the Measures of Academic Progress Assessments (MAP) from the Northwest Evaluation Association (NWEA). MAP Assessments are computer adaptive achievement tests in mathematics and reading that measure student growth to help teachers differentiate instruction. Students in all of our 3 schools (Charleston=CHS, Spartanburg=SPA and Brentwood=BWD) scored well above the national average!
