Students Improve on Graduation Tests

Students at Buffalo High School (BHS) outperformed the Minnesota average on graduation tests that were administered this spring. BHS sophomores (83 percent) met the state's reading requirement on their first attempt by earning a proficient score on MCA-II (Minnesota Comprehensive Assessments) or by earning a passing score on the GRAD (Graduation-Required Assessments for Diploma). This represents an impressive nine percent increase over last year's results. Overall, 78 percent of Minnesota students met the state's reading graduation requirement on their first attempt. The GRAD reading test is embedded into the MCA-II.
