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.

State Rating - OSSE Classification

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.

Tier 2

PCSB Performance Management Framework (PMF) Rating

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).

About the test

In spring 2016, District of Columbia students took the Partnership for the Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers, or PARCC, assessments for the first time. The new assessment, which replaced the DC CAS annual assessment, is more rigorous and designed to measure students' readiness for college and career.
