ELIZABETH – Approximately 2,000 people were expected to gather in the Dunn Sports Center on Tuesday, Oct. 23, for a large-scale celebration of student achievements. The Perfect Scores Award Ceremony honored students who earned a perfect score on the New Jersey Assessment of Skills and Knowledge (NJ ASK) and their subject area teachers who were instrumental in helping these students achieve academic excellence.
The NJ ASK is a state mandated test which is administered annually to third through eighth graders in order to assess their proficiency levels in Mathematics, Language Arts and Science. The district is proud to continue making tremendous strides in academic excellence, having increased from 23 perfect scores in 2007 to a record 331 perfect scores in 2012.
At the ceremony, Perfect Score students and their subject area teachers were recognized by Superintendent of Schools Pablo Muñoz and the Elizabeth Board of Education members, who presented every student and teacher with an award and commemorative poster memorializing their hard work and commitment to achieving excellence.
