The percentage of Cheney School District students achieving benchmarks in math is shown in the above graphic.

Math can be a difficult subject, and it's common for students to struggle with it as children and young adults. But according to recent test scores, elementary students in the Cheney School District are grasping grade-level math concepts much better than their older counterparts.

Third-graders in the Cheney district are meeting math benchmarks at a significantly higher rate than older students. About 66 percent of incoming third-graders met required math benchmarks last year, while that number dropped to 40 percent for incoming sixth-graders and 38 percent for incoming ninth-graders.
