For high schools, the average 8th grade proficiency ratings in ELA and Math for all their students that have 8th grade test scores are used. Lower values indicate student populations with higher need.
Progress Reports grade each school with an A, B, C, D, or F. These reports focus on a school’s learning environment, student performance, and student progress. They were designed to help parents, teachers, principals, and others understand how well schools are doing—and compare them to other, similar schools.
