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

Very concerning:

Parent tips

Test scores are important to look at because they indicate where students are performing compared to grade-level standards. Ask the school what it's doing to help students who are behind. Understand what on-track learning looks like, and explore higher-performing schools in your area to find the best opportunities for your child to succeed.

Student progress

Good news!

Parent tip

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