When journalists describe U.S. students as academically “behind” other countries or that Singapore has one of the best education systems in the world, they are often referring to performance on the Program for International Student Assessment (PISA), an exam given to students to evaluate critical thinking and application of knowledge in math, reading, and science. Individual schools have the opportunity to evaluate their students’ performance on the global stage with the OECD Test for Schools (based on PISA).
Leading the World in Math, Reading, and Science
Student performance on this exam is a point of great pride for our communities—it speaks to the power of our program and the dedication of our teachers. Our schools are helping shape the future of education—a future where students build lasting bonds with teachers, learn at the highest international levels, and become active, contributing members of their communities.
