We will offer the winter NWEA MAP Growth test in-person at our school on Tuesday, January 12, 2020 and Wednesday, January 13, 2020 for students in sixth, seventh, or eighth grades applying for academic centers or high school programs with an academic criteria for the selection process. Examples of programs with academic criteria include selective enrollment programs as well as some IB programs, Career Technical Education programs, and military programs.
If your child is applying for GoCPS programs with academic criteria you should note the following:
