Student progress

The Student Progress Rating compares progress made by students at this school to other schools in the state, using student growth data provided by the state Department of Education. It’s a helpful way to measure how well a school is helping kids learn and advance. Learn more about this rating.

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 low test scores means. that students are starting at a low point and falling farther behind their peers.

One key way the best schools help all students learn is by giving them voice and choice.

Test scores

A worrisome sign:

Test scores at this school fall below the state average. This suggests that most students at this school may not be performing at grade level.

Ask the school what it’s doing to help students who are behind. Understand what on-track learning looks like,. More and explore higher-performing schools in your area to find the best opportunities for your child to succeed.

Why are grade-level scores sometimes different from the overall score for a subject? Most likely this is due to suppression. States are required to suppress grade/subject data if the number of test-taking students is too small. This helps protect student privacy, and can mean that some grade-level scores that are part of the overall score cannot be displayed individually.

The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC)

English, Math, Geometry, English 2, Algebra I

In 2018-19, students in Washington, D.C. took the PARCC assessment. The PARCC assessment is computer-based and matches the high expectations of the Common Core State Standards, requiring students to think critically and solve real-world problems. Students in grades 3-8 and students enrolled in Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, Integrated Math II, and English II took the PARCC test. The PARCC test assesses what students are learning in school and helps teachers and parents know if students are on track for success in college and careers.

Note : To provide an at-a-glance view of proficiency at this school, we calculate an overall test score for each subject weighted by the number of students tested in each grade.
