    Is there any way to find out just what skill level our sponsored kids are at in different subject areas?

  • Compassion International

    Hi Beth! Regrettably, we do not keep this type of information on file. You can, however, look at their overall school performance on your "My Account" under "My Sponsorships." We can also tell you what their favorite subject is and what grade they are in if you email This may give you an idea of where your child is at. -Susan
