Student progress

Worth a deeper look:

Students at this school are making average academic progress given where they were last year, compared to similar students in the state.

Average student progress (also known as student growth) 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 test scores.

Average progress with low test scores means... that students are starting at a low point but keeping up with their peers.

Average progress with high test scores means students have strong academic skills and students in this school are learning at the same rate as similar students in other schools.


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.
