Project Report | Jul 18, 2011
Our Students Continue to Excel

By Suzanne Plopper | Project Manager

The Lycee Moderne de l'Amitie (LMA, the combined middle/secondary school) reports the following year-end results for its students:  70% of all students successfully passed national exams, qualifying them to proceed to the next class. 

Unfortunately, Burkina Faso experienced political unrest for much of the spring semester which forced the closing of schools for extended periods of time during the semester.  This disrupted the educational system throughout the country and impacted teachers' ability to adequately cover subject matter in their classes. 

Given these conditions, however, students of the LMA still outperformed other middle school students in the region.  Forty eight percent of LMA students passed the BEPC (the exit exam at the end of middle school which determines if a student may go on to secondary school) versus 30% of students at all other middle schools in the region.
