MasteryKeys Success: Stanley and Logansport High Schools 

Logansport High School (45% minority, 47% free/reduced lunch) and Stanley High School (21% minority, 30% free/reduced lunch) are both rural schools that have benefited from an emphasis on improving WorkKeys scores using the MasteryKeys Curriculum.

"We did great this year! We surpassed our goals at both Logansport and Stanley High Schools. Much of the growth was due to Workkeys. We had a tremendous amount of success with WorkKeys. At LHS in August, the seniors' index was 50, and we are currently at 80.5! At SHS in August, the seniors index was 81. SHS ended the year at 100.6! In such a rural area, the WorkKeys test has proven to be extraordinarily beneficial to so many students, giving them opportunities they didn't think they would have."
