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.
