Cardinal Hour

In order to provide greater opportunities for success for all students and to support the school vision of being “Actively Engaged in Learning.”  Cardinal Hour occurs on Monday thru Friday during the school day.  During this time, students will have the opportunity to eat lunch and spend time in acceleration, enrichment and/or involvement activities of their choice based on individual need or interest.   When they are not eating, students can see teachers to make up work, get extra help, attend a study group, do ACT/SAT prep, meet with a guidance counselor, attend club meetings, listen to college/community/local business leaders/motivational speakers, or just get involved in school activities.  Click on links below for more information.

Resources for End of Course Assessments

Graduating Class of 2018


The purpose of the End of Course Assessments is to measure student achievement in the subject areas of English/Language Arts and Mathematics. The End of Course Assessments (ECAs) are criterion-referenced assessments developed specifically for students completing their instruction in Algebra I or English 10.


Resources for ISTEP

Resources for Class of 2019 and after


The purpose of the Indiana Statewide Testing for Educational Progress-Plus (ISTEP+) Indiana Statewide Testing for Educational Progress Plus (ISTEP+) program is to measure student achievement in the subject areas of English/Language Arts, Mathematics, Science (Grades 4, 6 and 10), and Social Studies (Grades 5 and 7). In particular, ISTEP+ reports student achievement levels according to the Indiana Academic Standards that were adopted by the Indiana State Board of Education. The assessments are administered in two parts: Part 1 consists of applied skills (open-ended) items, and Part 2 includes multiple-choice and technology-enhanced items. Both Part 1 and Part 2 are required components of the ISTEP+ program and are used to measure student mastery of the Indiana Academic Standards.
