About the Minnesota Comprehensive Assessment: The Minnesota Comprehensive Assessments (MCAs) are the state tests that help districts measure student progress toward Minnesota's academic standards and meet the requirements of No Child Left Behind.

Students in grades 3-8 and 10 take the Reading MCA-II Assessments. Students in grade 11 take the Mathematics MCA-II. Between 2006 and 2010, students in grades 3-8 took the Mathematics MCA-II, but starting in 2011 students in these grades take the Mathematics MCA-III. Beginning in 2008, students also take Science MCA-II Assessments in grades 5, 8 and high school. The MCA-II series is aligned to Minnesota academic standards adopted in 2003, while the MCA-III is aligned to 2007 standards. Results from the original MCA, the MCA-II, and the successor MCA-III series, should not be compared because they are aligned to different standards.

Open Quote This is our 4th year at LJA. I am so thankful my child has spent her middle school years at this school. There are many things I like about this school-all girls, extended day for learning, dedicated staff/administration who continually evaluate and change the program, as needed; a first-rate curriculum, to mention just a few. The best thing for me though, is seeing the confidence build in my daughter and knowing that she will continue to ask questions and explore learning-it's not just about a grade or getting it done. With that attitude along with a solid academic foundation, I am confident this school has prepared my child for future school success. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
