Note:  St. Croix Prep has maintained its philosophical emphasis of aligning its classroom instruction with its curriculum and not focusing any classroom instruction on standardized test preparation.  Our proficiency percentages are for the entire school (K-12).  Media presentation of statewide results often break out scores by a district’s elementary (K-5; K-6), middle school/junior high (6-8; 6-9), and high schools (9-12; 10-12).

Options

  • Distance Learning Model. This is how school operated from March 30 to May 31 with instruction being done while students remain at home.

Please note:  Per MDE, given local pandemic circumstances, it is possible that schools could use all three models throughout the year.
