GreatSchools Rating

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.

About the test

Educators must measure what students know at a point early enough in their academic career to make adjustments and continue to measure their progress and what they learn over time. With the adoption of ACT Aspire, the Alabama State Department of Education is ensuring that our students are ready. ACT Aspire is a standards-based assessment system that gauges student progression from grades 3 through 10 in English, reading, writing, mathematics, and science. ACT Aspire is administered to all Grade 3-8 students in Alabama public schools. As ACT Plan sunsets in fall 2014, ACT Aspire will be administered to all students in Grade 10
