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

Worth a deeper look:

Test scores at this school are about the same as the state average, though still below the top-performing schools in the state. Because test scores in some states are so low, many students at this school may not be performing at grade level.


Parent tips

Ask the school what it’s doing to help students who are behind. Understand what on-track learning looks like, and ask the school what it’s doing to accelerate progress for students.

College readiness
Learn more about how to help your child graduate ready for college. See how.

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.)


Parent tip

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

Student progress

A promising sign

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

Strong student progress (also known as student growth) 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.

Strong progress with low test scores means... that students are starting at a low point but the school is doing a better job at supporting their academic growth than most other schools.

Strong progress with high test scores means students have strong academic skills and the school is a doing a better job at supporting academic growth than most other schools.


Parent tip

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