Student Performance

Sacred Heart School of Glyndon students excel in our academically rigorous environment and consistently score above the average on both Archdiocesan and national standardized testing. Our students continue to be accepted by Catholic high schools throughout the Archdiocese and are rewarded for their excellence in academics with advanced course placements and academic scholarships, totaling more than $900,000 per class in recent years. Sacred Heart is also proud to be the home base for several Knott Scholarship winners with our most recent award occurring in the 2020-2021 school year!

Where Graduates of The Sacred Heart School of Glyndon Attend

They also attend some of the premier private schools and public schools located in Maryland! 

Until 2019, Students in grades 2-8 were administered the Iowa Assessments and Cognitive Abilities Test for Reading, Language, Math, Science, Social Studies, and Listening Skills. Sacred Heart School students not only score above the national average, their scores also improve as they matriculate through our grade levels.

Sacred Heart is pleased to announce the implementation of the Scantron Performance Series (Language Arts, Math, Reading, Science) and Scantron Achievement Series (Social Studies) are used as a standardized testing measure. These tests provide both formative and summative data to guide teacher instruction. Grades 2 through 8 are assessed in Language Arts, Math, and Reading, while grades 3, 5, and 7 also are assessed in Science and Social Studies. 

The ACRE (Assessment of Children/Youth Religious Education) is given to students in grades 5 and 8 as mandated by the Archdiocese of Baltimore. 

Standardized test scores are not the only measure of a school’s quality. These tests are designed to assess an individual student’s performance compared to all students nationally. They do not compare a school’s quality to other schools. Many other factors should affect your decision about which school your child should attend, including: educational philosophy, curriculum quality, teacher credentials, class size, location, cost, availability of resources, discipline policy, opportunities for parental involvement and communications.

  • 2019-2020 Standardized Tests not completed due to pandemic school closure.
