Student progress
This rating measures how much students at this school improved from one year to the next, compared to students with similar proficiency levels at other schools in the state.

Very concerning:

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

Very low progress with low test scores means students are starting at a low point and falling even farther behind their peers.


Parent tip

Ask the school how it interprets this rating and how it might use this information to improve its programs.
