Student progress

Good news!

Students at this school are making far more academic progress given where they were last year, compared to other students in the state.

High student progress (also known as student growth) means different things, depending on the school's test scores.

High progress with low test scores means... that students are starting at a low point but the school is doing a great job at supporting their academic growth compared to most other schools.

High progress with high test scores means... students have strong academic skills and the school is a doing an excellent job at supporting academic growth compared to most other schools.
