College readiness

Worth a deeper look:

This school is about the same as the state average in key measures of college and career readiness, but depending on the state, average can mean only a minority of students are ready for college and career.

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

Ask the school what it’s doing to help all students succeed in advanced classes and prepare for college entrance tests.
