Test scores
Find out what state standardized test scores really tell you about a school – and what they don’t.

Very concerning:

Test scores at this school fall far below the state average. This suggests that students at this school are likely not performing at grade level.


Parent tips

Test scores are important to look at because they indicate where students are performing compared to grade-level standards. Ask the school what it's doing to help students who are behind. Understand what on-track learning looks like, and explore higher-performing schools in your area to find the best opportunities for your child to succeed.
