Tracking student progress is key to building lifetime achievers. In partnership with Norwalk Public Schools, Carver measures progress across reading, math, science, critical thinking and creative expression. Since not all progress can be measured by tests and grades, Carver also utilizes student and teacher surveys, parent meetings, and other forms of feedback to follow the overall improvement of students.
So what does all of this data tell us? Students improve with Carver!
