Assessment at Shortridge High School reflects the staff’s aim to encourage creative and critical thinking and to develop knowledge and skills to analyze, synthesize and evaluate. Unlike traditional A to F grading where grades are subjective, at Shortridge, a student’s work is evaluated in relation to defined levels of achievement.

To see progress, login to PowerSchool. That grade reflects your child’s progress so far this semester. Additional tools can be found here.

At the semester, those grades become official credits so you can monitor graduation requirements and work towards on-time graduation!
