Smarter Balanced Assessment: English and Math

In schools across the country, teachers are implementing new academic standards that provide consistent guidelines in English and math at each grade level and help prepare students to graduate high school ready for college and the workplace. These new benchmarks challenge students to develop a deeper understanding of subject matter, learn how to think critically, and apply what they are learning to the real world.

To help parents, teachers, and school leaders know whether students are on the path to success, states joined together to develop improved tests of student achievement. The Smarter Balanced assessments will replace existing tests in English and math for grades 3-8 and high school in the 2014-15 school year. Administered online, these new assessments will adapt to each student’s ability, giving teachers and parents better information to help students succeed.

Please follow the links below to find out more about the assessments students in grades 3-5 will be taking soon.

About Breeze Hill

Breeze Hill Elementary School opened in 1992 in southern Vista with a vision of setting the highest possible academic and personal expectations for students. The goal of educators there is for each student to experience a sense of pride through positive accomplishments, mastery of grade-level standards, and development of valuable relationships as we prepare them for a successful future in the 21st century. The school was awarded the California Distinguished School Award in 2000 and 2004.

The school staff works collaboratively with families to ensure a strong community connection. Parents participate in a variety of ways, including through the PTA, School Site Council, English Learner Advisory Committee and by volunteering in the classroom. Throughout the year the PTA raises money and hosts events which help strengthen the programs and community at the school. Some of these events include the annual fall carnival, family movie nights, book fair and literacy night, school talent show and Jog-a-Thon.

The Breeze Hill school community takes pride in the numerous opportunities provided for students.  The Breeze Hill Garden Learning Center has been recognized by the National Wildlife Foundation as a “Schoolyard Habitat” and by MonarchWatch.org as a Monarch Butterfly Waystation.  Our garden is a valuable and scenic venue for teaching students about the wonders of our natural environment, as well as the life cycles of native flora and fauna.

Breeze Hill serves a diverse population of 870 students in kindergarten through fifth grade.  There are 33 classroom teachers, and a number of certificated staff who work collaboratively to educate all students. Staff members are role models of courtesy, respect, hard work, and personal achievement.
