The scores are in!
On April 19, eighth graders at schools all over the state received the results of the Minnesota Basic Standards Tests in reading and math.
Mississippi Horizons eighth graders had been waiting anxiously for their scores since they took the tests in February.
In reading, 87% of the MHS eighth graders passed, exactly the same percentage as last year's eighth grade.
Math saw a slight decline, with 80% of the eighth graders passing. That compares to 82% for last year.
Students who did not pass have several more opportunities to attempt the tests, which must be passed before graduation.
