Please review the information below for details.

Standards-based Measurement of Proficiency (STAMP) Testing

Students interested in admission for 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 7th or 8th grades for the 2024-2025 school year must first take the STAMP 4Se (4-Skill elementary) assessment and meet language proficiency standards before applying to the lottery. This ensures that your student has enough proficiency in the target language to be successful in our language immersion program. Below are the required scores for each grade level. 

Middle school proficiency levels can qualify students for Language I/II, II, III, or IV. *Students who do not already have high school credit for I and II entering into Language III in 7th grade or IV in 8th grade may only receive high school credit for the courses completed at GLOBE.

The sample test is a good indicator of how your child will do on the actual test. If he or she does well we strongly encourage you to officially register for the required language assessment. Be advised, the sample test is an evaluation tool used to determine your child(ren)’s current knowledge of one of the 3 target languages (French, Spanish, Mandarin).
