Steller Secondary School will participate in the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) on February 6, 2019. NAEP is the largest nationally representative and continuing assessment of what students know and can do in various subjects. NAEP is administered by the National Center for Education Statistics, within the U.S. Department of Education. NAEP is different from our state assessments because it is a common measure of achievement across the country. The results are released as The Nation’s Report Card, which provides information about student achievement to educators, parents, policymakers, and the public.

I am so proud of Xavier’s accomplishment.” The All-Northwest Wind Symphony will rehearse at the Double Tree Hotel in Portland, OR, from Friday, February 15 through Sunday, the 17th.
