Test Scores

Students of Bethel in grades 3-8 take the Smarter Balanced assessment on English/Language Arts and Math, and students in grades 5 and 8 take the Dakota STEP on Science. These are the same standardized tests taken by all 3rd-8th graders enrolled in South Dakota schools which are accredited by the state Board of Education. Students of Bethel have regularly tested above the state and national norms on standardized tests. While test scores are not the sole indicator of student achievement and considerations must be made, we take pride in the success of our students.
