From Below Norms to Above Average – and Still Growing!

In 2014, South Bend’s Our Lady of Hungary Catholic School welcomed its third principal in four years: Kevin Goralczyk, an Indiana native and seasoned educator. Together with the parish’s pastor, Reverend Kevin Bauman, Principal Goralczyk began exploring how Our Lady of Hungary could raise its pre-K–8 student achievement and better support teachers serving a fast-changing school population. The school’s dedication to data-driven instruction and Professional Learning paid off. By the end of their second school year using MAP® Growth™, teachers were seeing growth reflected in the scores as well as every day in the classroom.
