NWEA/ Map Testing at AJHS 2017-18


In an effort to ensure that we are meeting the individual needs of our students, it is necessary to have an assessment that measures the academic growth of each student for each instructional year. To that end, the 2017-18 school year is the second year the NWEA (Northwest Evaluation Assessment) or MAP (Measure of Academic Progress) assessment is being administered by our District.  We’re excited to be able to utilize these nationally-normed assessments meant to measure academic growth (skills based growth) in the areas of Mathematics and Reading. These assessments will be administered a total of three times throughout the school year so that we can measure growth obtained in an instructional year with a mid-year data point. The resultant data is used to gauge the attainment of content skills, and will be utilized by our District, school sites, and school site instructors to inform instruction and address the strengths and areas for growth of our student population through the use of the NWEA learning continuum.


Additionally, the resultant data will be used (1 of 3-4 placement criteria) for placement in both *Mathematics and English and Language Arts.  


For more information, please visit the following links on the PVUSD Webpage.

Link for AJHS "Bullying Survey" #2




Dear students and staff,

    The AJHS Leadership class has been working together to create a safe, accepting, and inclusive school environment. Not In Our School is a national anti-bullying program that we feel will positively impact school culture here at Aptos Junior High School.

      During the week of October 17-21, our Leadership class will reveal the results of our online survey, lead student activities, and share the PSA videos made on this important topic.


    Thank you for your support of our efforts to improve school culture.




The Leadership Team.
