We have not assigned a GreatSchools rating to this school, due to incomplete or unavailable data.
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.
The DC school classification system includes multiple measures to evaluate performance and student growth. The possible classifications, from highest to lowest, are Reward, Rising, Developing, Focus and Priority. These measures include the DC CAS, annual growth, graduation rates, attendance rates and participation rates. Under the system, required under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), each school is given a School Index Score based on the performance of its students. Schools receive different levels of support, resources, flexibility and monitoring based on their classification.
The DC Public Charter School Board (PCSB) provides school performance reports as a way to share how PCSB evaluates each public charter school. Although each charter school is unique, PCSB's Performance Management Framework (PMF) enables the board to look at school performance across common measures. Using a 100-point scale and based on the total scores for the academic scoring screen, standard schools are identified as Tier 1 (high-performing), Tier 2 (mid-performing) or Tier 3 (low-performing).
SchoolGrades.org uses a rigorous, common standard to compare schools across the United States. It adjusts for differences in academic standards across the states and accounts for each school’s unique economic profile. School letter grades are based on how well students perform based on an international standard of excellence.
