We’re in the home stretch of the year with about 18 days left for K-11, and you know what that means? Keystone Exams!
The Keystone Exams are end-of-course assessments designed to assess proficiency in the subject areas of Algebra I, Literature, and Biology.
We begin with biology, exploring photosynthesis and the X and Y chromosomes. Those testing days will be the 21 and the 22nd.
