In partnership with University of Portland, PDX Summer School was able to get our 2013 summer session assessment data audited. By working with an independent party we can report our students achievements with 100% accuracy and validate that our program is successfully teaching students to meet and exceed grade level standards.
Thanks to all the amazing teachers who made these results possible.
