Test Scores

(Average 2008-2013): The top bar represents a 5-year average of Padre Pio Academy students.  The bottom bar (ITBS) represents the national norm for those grades.


The Iowa Test of Basic Skills is administered to all students in 2nd through 8th grade at Padre Pio Academy.  All students in the school are included in the results.  No child is excluded even if they have a diagnosis or disability.  The students perform, on average, 1 1/2 to up to 3 grade levels above their peers in Math and 1 1/2 to 3 1/2 grade levels above their peers in Reading.
