Very concerning:

(Remember: high graduation rates don't mean much if students are graduating without the coursework and test scores they need to succeed.)

Academic progress

Worth a deeper look:

Students at this school are making average academic progress given where their class was last year, compared to students at other schools in the state.

Average academic progress means different things. In some states, the average progress is so low, a majority of students are not ready for college and career. It also depends on the school’s actual test scores.

Parent tip:

Ask the school how it interprets this rating and how it might use this information to help students grow and reach their full potential.
