How many kids at this school are on or above grade level?

Academic Achievement is a measure of the end of year state assessment called the Smarter Balanced test (SBAC). On a grading scale of 1 through 4, a student receives a 3 for proficient or a 4 for advanced. This is also referred to as "on grade level" or "above grade level."

For Middle Schools, this number includes students who take the end-of-course exam.

Equity in education means personal or social circumstances do not impact achievement. This data shows students on or above grade level across the school's student population. Differences may suggest some student groups are not getting the support to succeed. Note: Subgroups that are less than 25 in the total number of students tested are not included here.

  1. Median Growth Percentile (MGP): tells us how well a school is supporting the growth of all students compared to last year.
