Embers provides its students with a program of academic excellence which is mission driven, well planned, and validly assessed.
Terra Nova Assessment
All 3rd – 5th grade students take a yearly assessment, the Terra Nova Tests, every March. These tests assess Embers students in all areas of Reading, Language and Math.
Our cumulative average for graduating 5th grade students is consistently in the +90th percentile, compared to fifth graders throughout the country.
What people are saying…
What wonderful fifth graders you have at Embers! They were terrific in the classroom – very eager to participate. I was very impressed with them, and I look forward to having them again next year!
Keep up the good work!
The Willows Middle School faculty
One month ago, Mrs. Huntington, dean of the middle school at the Willows Academy, asked me to tell Mrs. Davis how well prepared the 6th grade girls are and specially how nice and welcoming they are to other students. You can tell what girls come from Embers because they know how to include everyone in the group.
Yesterday at Northridge Prep, Mr. Burns, middle school history teacher, told my husband and me how well prepared the boys are. They exceed in the writing. They are above average. He asked his students to do some research and some of the boys did not have a clue about what to do. But he told us that the Embers boys immediately responded: “Oh, we know…Mrs. Mersch at Embers taught us what it is and how to do it.”
I just feel so much happiness when I hear these comments and feel very proud to be part of the Embers school family, both as a parent and as a teacher. All the effort invested in our kids at Embers does so much good!!
