The end of the year results of the NWEA MAP’s test are in for the PODER Academy in Cheyenne, Wyoming.

The PODER Academy, is a college-readiness charter school which combines academics with daily lessons in tennis and chess from specially trained instructors.

Poder had students in grades K-4th for the 2013/2014 school year, and the overwhelming majority of students have done extremely well. Poder Academy CEO and Founder Marcos Martinez says according to national averages, PODER Academy was above the national average in math, reading, science, and language proficiency for every single class and grade in the school.

Martinez says in a school that has one of the highest levels of free/reduced lunch students in Laramie County School District #1 at approximately 76%, PODER Academy had a great academic showing. These test scores indicate that nearly every single student in the school is scoring at grade level or above in every core subject.

Martinez says the PODER Academy has also completed the application to add a new charter high school in Laramie County School District #1. This has been a year long process that has included community outreach, parent and board trainings, and overall application development. The PODER Academy leadership intend on turning in the application to the district on Friday, May 30, 2014.
