In most states, we show a Summary Rating which is based on multiple measures, including information like college readiness, student progress, advanced coursework, and how well a school is serving students from all racial/ethnic and socioeconomic groups.

This state does not have sufficient information for us to generate a Summary Rating, which is why we instead display the school’s Test Score Rating.
