A promising sign:

Test scores at this school are above the state average. Because test scores in some states are so low, some students at this school may still not be performing at grade level

College readiness
Learn more about how to help your child graduate ready for college. See how.

Very concerning:

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

(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 schools what it’s doing to improve access to advanced classes and help prepare students for college entrance tests.
