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.

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 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.


Parent tip

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