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

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.
