ESLRs

 

EXPECTED SCHOOL-WIDE LEARNING RESULTS

There are certain traits that our school targets for all students to know, believe, understand, prefer, and be able to do upon completion of our program. These ESLRs, or expected student outcomes, are assessed each year during the senior exit interview to help determine the school’s progress in achieving its mission. Brethren Christian School will develop:
