EL MONTE – Nearly 200 El Monte City School District students achieved the highest possible scores on state standardized tests for English language arts (ELA) or math taken in spring 2019, according to recently released state data.
The District’s Board of Education honored the 178 students, who span grades three through eight, at its Nov. 12 meeting as parents and teachers cheered and applauded.
“We are so proud of our students and of our teachers for creating classroom environments that prepare students to shine,” Board of Education President Jennifer Cobian said.
El Monte City School District has shown continuous growth with the number of students earning the highest possible scores on the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress.
More than half of all El Monte City School District students scored proficient or better on state ELA tests in spring 2019, a 4.8 percentage point increase from 2018. Math scores rose 4.7 percentage points.
Superintendent Dr. Maribel Garcia credited the achievement to the District’s rigorous curriculum, its Leader in Me program, which teaches positive behaviors and responsibility, and individual learning support.
“These exceptional CAASPP scores are the result of our students’ commitment to excellence, the hard work of our teachers and the investment of our parents in their child’s education,” Garcia said. “El Monte City School District is dedicated to the success of students, and we are incredibly thankful for our community and their continued support.”
