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.)

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