Three times a year Shiloh students take MAP tests to measure what they know and indicate what they're ready to learn in reading, language usage, and math. Each test adapts to the ability level of the student. The students below earned scores in the 90th percentile or higher. This means that they scored as well as, or better than, 90% of the students across the nation on the indicated subtest of the MAP.
Mark your calendars for the Shiloh School play "It's a Madhouse!" on Sunday, February 5, 2023. Admission is $3 for adults and $2 for students.
