Good news!

This school is far above the state average in key measures of college and career readiness.

Even at schools with strong college and career readiness, there may be students who are not getting the opportunities they need to succeed.

Student progress

Very concerning:

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

Very 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.
