Middle School - Standardized Testing Coming Soon

Each year, WA state mandates standardized testing for public school students. Things have been a bit unusual during the peaks of COVID but they are getting back to normal. Please sign up by Monday, April 18.

  • 8th Grade: This year, all 8thth graders are planned to take the WCAS assessment for Science. We are planning this test during the weeks of May 16-20 and May 23-25.

This test will be administered by TOL staff in-person and on-site at the Tacoma Professional Development center located in N. Tacoma at 6501 N. 23rd Street Tacoma, WA 98406. In order to best utilize the space we have, we will only schedule students to test who responded to this sign up saying YES, they will take these tests. These tests will require you to bring your TPS laptop with you to the test location.
