Marquardt District 15 uses data to identify school needs, set goals, and track student progress. Data on student growth and achievement also helps parents understand where their child is succeeding and where he or she can improve. Measures of school climate and culture, organizational health, and parent satisfaction also help to ensure overall growth.


Marquardt School District 15 uses the Northwest Evaluation Association's (NWEA) Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) to provide consistent, accurate snapshots of our students growth from year-to-year. 

Results in mathematics and reading from the past three years demonstrate:                       

  • Students grew more than the national average in every grade level in 2014-2015
  • Students grew more than the national average in every grade level in 2013-2014
  • Students grew more than the national average for all grade levels except one in 2012-2013


A healthy school climate and culture is the foundation of teaching and learning. The norms and values, relationships and social interactions, and organizational processes and structures of a school are vital to students’ ability to develop and learn.
