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
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 worrisome sign:

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

Low progress with high test scores means students have strong academic skills but that students in this school are making smaller gains than similar students in other schools.


Parent tip

Ask the school how it interprets this rating and how it might use this information to improve its programs.
