School Report Card

Below is the link to our School Report Card, released October 1, 2019 by the State Department of Education.  Based on a number of factors, each school in the state has been rated as excellent, good, average, below average, or unsatisfactory.

These report cards factor in multiple data points, test scores and surveys. The report attempts to measure a school’s academic achievement, student progress, college and career readiness and school climate. The reports will also include data on English Learners’ Progress, Student Safety, and Financial information. High School reports will factor in graduation rates.

If you have any questions or concerns related to our school’s ratings, feel free to contact our principal via email or phone.
