As I’m sure you know, testing has become a major part of public schooling. Many recent state and federal initiatives are based on good intentions involving "accountability", but have little to no effect on your child's learning. While the data that can be gleaned from testing is used by PFHS teachers and administration to guide instruction, test scores themselves cannot fully describe your child's academic growth. With that in mind, the PFHS testing office strives to ensure that every student has a successful and stress-fee testing experience that will never distract from the world-class education LCPS is known for delivering.
