Take a look at what’s going on in Stuttgart’s schools.

STANDARDIZED TESTING

Photo by Ed Thornburg

Terra Nova is a series of standardized achievement tests used in the United States designed to assess K-12 student achievement in reading, language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, vocabulary, spelling, and other areas. Students take the testing very seriously because the results help them plan for their future. Students discover their academic strengths and weaknesses, and with the assistance from teachers and parents, can set up a plan for improvement. In this photo we see students from Patch Middle School taking the Language Arts section of the test.

READ ACROSS AMERICA

The Read Across American Program is sponsored by the National Education Association, and is celebrated in classrooms all across American and DoDEA's overseas schools. On Dr. Seuss' birthday each year, books are read to students by adult volunteers. In this photo we see adult volunteer Sharon Gilbert who has just finished reading the classic Dr. Seuss book "Horton Hears a Who" to an Advisory Class at Patch Middle School.
