LILA Test Dates For 2017-18

Please Note These Testing Dates

LILA meets all requirements for assessments as a Minnesota public school. We also administer some tests as a way to help guide our students' progress. Parents can participate in the process by ensuring their student has a good night's sleep prior to the test, eats a well-balanced breakfast, and comes to school on testing dates on time. If you have questions or concerns, please contact Executive Director This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. (Lower School) or Director This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. (Upper School). As the dates get closer, classroom teachers will keep families informed about specific test dates and times for each student. Together, we can help LILA students achieve their potential!
