Singapore Math Drives Achievement at MCS
Milpitas Christian School's decision to adopt Singapore Math for the elementary grades has helped the students to perform significantly higher than the national norm on standardized achievement tests. Singapore Math prepares students to understand numerical relationships, concept skills, and data analysis with problem-solving. Students showed strong performance across all objectives, including reading, mathematics, science, social studies, and spelling.
Milpitas Christian School (MCS) students are performing significantly above national norms in mathematics and math computation, according to the latest standardized tests. Each year, MCS students in grades 2-8 are measured on their mastery of key educational objectives, including reading, mathematics, science, social studies, and spelling. The current 2019-2020 school year marks the first time MCS has offered Singapore Math across the K-5 elementary grades.
“MCS has a proud tradition of being known for students who perform way above the national norm on standardized tests,” stated Clark Gilbert, Head of School/Principal for Milpitas Christian School. “Our school continues to focus upon equipping our students to reach their God-given potential in as many areas as possible. We are pleased to see our students continue to excel when compared with others at the national level.”
