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

Good news!

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

High student progress (also known as student growth) means different things, depending on the school's test scores.

High progress with low test scores means... that students are starting at a low point but the school is doing a great job at supporting their academic growth compared to most other schools.

High progress with high test scores means students have strong academic skills and the school is a doing an excellent job at supporting academic growth compared to most other schools.


Parent tip

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