I’m so excited to report to you that the sixth-grade exam pass rate for the schools we support is nearly 100% again this year!
The exam I’m referring to is the one students must pass in order to exit primary school and continue on to middle school.
This year, 144 out of 145 sixth-grade students passed the exam. Last year, we had 176 graduate with a 99% pass rate. This success is unheard of in Niger. Normally about 50% or 60% of students pass the exam at most schools.
We are incredible proud of the teachers and students at the schools we support. They work tirelessly for this success.
