2022 Standardized Test Scores, Again, Give Reason for Community Celebration

During the 2022 spring semester Salida Schools’ students participated in CMAS, PSAT, and SAT, and once again, the District and community have huge reasons to celebrate.

Looking first at CMAS* scores, in 4th through 8th grades, Salida Schools’ students scored above the state average in math, literacy, and science. Third grade scores were within a percentage point of the state number, and then the gaps grow showing that Salida Schools’ students outperform the state’s percentage in every other category, in every other grade tested.

2022 CMAS Math and ELA Scores

Salida High School students also recorded impressive scores on the SAT and PSAT. The 11th grade students who participated in the SAT** scored an average of 43 points higher than the rest of Colorado and an astounding 65 points better than the rest of the nation. Students in 9th and 10th grade who took the PSAT*** matched their older classmates by outpacing the state average by 42 points and the national average by 65 points, as well.

The success of Salida School District students is truly a reflection of the commitment to education by the entire community. Families, school staff members and board members, and each and every person who supports our local youth, should be proud of the effort our students put into these tests each year.

Families will receive an individual report that will show the subject areas where their child is excelling as well as where they may need more support.
