Eighth grade students scored 279 on average, three points lower than the national average. Neither of the scores was significantly different from 2007.

The National Assessment of Educational Progress is a series of federally funded tests assessing children in nine subject areas. Nationwide, fourth grade students made no improvement over 2007, while eighth grade students continued to post gains.
