How are the test scores?

Boy in class
  • Saint Anthony Park’s test scores are consistently among the highest in the district and in the state.  Last year, 93 percent of fifth-graders proved proficient on the MCA-II Science test.

    We know that choosing a school for your child will be based on more than successful test scores, but isn’t it nice to know that your child will be learning with and challenged by fellow students who really enjoy school and are having great success.
