Smarter Balance Testing
Glacier High School is a public charter school. As such we are required to test our students with all state mandated tests. We encourage all families to participate in testing as it can give good information and practice for your students. We do not force you to "teach to this test" and it is your right under law to opt out of any state test. We provide a very low stress and low pressure environment for your child during tests. We ask before you make any decisions regarding opting out of testing to discuss it with a charter teacher or administrator so we may answer any questions or concerns you may have. Smarter Balance testing is currently for 3rd -8th grade and 11th grade students. There are extra benefits for 11th grade students to participate in testing as scores can be submitted to colleges and waive certain entrance exams.

The test site does not score your tests or give you any results. It is helpful to have that guide to see what they are looking for. You will also see on this page the classroom activity examples. Any other questions please contact your charter teacher.
