Ratings

GreatSchools Rating

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. 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.

College readiness rating9
The college readiness rating combines this high school's graduation rates with data about college entrance exams, both of which are indicators of how well schools are preparing students for success in college and beyond. This rating is based on composite SAT scores and SAT participation (% of graduates taking the SAT) from 2011-12, and four-year adjusted graduation rates from 2013-14.

State Rating

Indiana uses the A through F School Grading System to assess the overall performance of a school. For the 2013-2014 school year, schools were graded based on performance and participation levels in state standardized tests and student growth using the Indiana Growth Model. In addition, high schools were graded on four-year (on-time) graduation rates and college and career readiness indicators including Advanced Placement exam results and industry certification exam results.

About the test

In 2012-2013 Indiana used the End-of-Course (ECA) assessment to test students in middle and high school in Algebra I, Biology I, and English 10. The ECA is a criterion-referenced assessment developed specifically for students completing their instruction in Algebra I, Biology I, or English 10. The goal is for all students to score at the passing level on the test.

About this data: Learn More »

  • Schools and districts across the nation are invited to participate in the OECD Test for Schools (based on the internationally respected PISA exam). This exam enables individual high schools to benchmark their students’ performance against that of their international peers. It is a unique assessment that measures students’ critical-thinking and problem-solving skills and gathers information about student attitudes toward learning and perceptions of the school environment. In each test subject, the score for each participating country is the average of all student scores in that country. The average score among OECD countries is 500 points. About two-thirds of students across OECD countries score between 400 and 600 points.
