HI TRHS Families,
Every Spring 3rd-8th grade students participate in state testing.
State testing touches on English Language Arts (ELA) and Math for all grade on the computer.

These are not timed tests. TRHS provides testing time slots to keep students moving through the testing experience so, it doesn’t become dragged out. Scheduled times also assist in minimizing distractions.
