Academic progress

A promising sign:

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

Strong academic progress means different things. In some states, the average progress is so low, that even strong progress may not prepare a majority of students for college and career. It also depends on the school’s test scores.

Parent tip:

Ask the school how it interprets this rating and what you can do to support the school’s continued success.
