Elementary/Middle School

NUI Elementary/Middle School continues to maintain its excellent academic record. The Stanford 10 Achievement Test (SAT10), a national standardized test, is administered every year to students in KG through 8th grade in the spring. In April 2011, over 92% of NUI students received scores that were average or above, and over 50% of students scored in the top 25% of the students who took the test nationwide. In addition, NUI students continue to receive honors at the state and national level. For example, four NUI elementary school students were National Student Winners in the 2011 National Language Arts League Competition. Seventy-three Noor-Ul-Iman School students qualified to participate in the Johns Hopkins University Center for Talented Youth 2011 Talent Search. Four eighth graders received Distinction in the Talent Search for scoring as well as or better than the average college-bound high school senior on the SAT. In addition, a third grader and an eighth grader received a CTY High Honors Award for their exceptionally high scores on the SCAT and SAT respectively.
