DATA DRIVEN ASSESSMENTS
We are committed to providing all of our students with the education they need to succeed and to do that, we must accurately measure their progress. The Educational Empowerment Group (EEG), is committed to providing our students with everything they need to perform well academically. We use testing and assessment data to improve our methods and to better prepare our students for life after graduation.
