At East Valley High School’s Microsoft Certification students in grades 9 through 12 are working to fulfill industry-recognized certifications in Word, PowerPoint, and Excel. Other certifications are also available. Certiport is the certification company that is used at EVHS. Students receive certification with a score of 700 out of 1,000. If a student scores at least 80% or 800 out of 1,000, they can qualify for free articulated community college credit. Our goal is for students to score 900 out of a 1,000. As of this writing, the following seven students are certified in Word: Ben Donohue, Illya Kononykhin, Marcos Marroquin, Rodney McGee, Tanner O’Brien, Ellie Syverson, and Leah Syverson. “Congratulations to these early achievers! I am certain many more will reach the standard. These tests are not easy, but the students
persevere, and feel a great sense of accomplishment when they pass.”

The overall goal is to get certified in Word, PowerPoint, and Excel within the semester’s time.
