We Focus on Improvement for Us and Our Scholars

Our goal is that 100% of our scholars are proficient in math and reading or they show one year’s growth in proficiency. Here is what we are doing to make that happen.

We assess all scholars in fall, winter and spring to track growth and pinpoint knowledge gaps. Here are some of the highlights from last year.

Building towards 8th grade graduation: 58% of scholars in math and 75% in reading in grades seven and eight were either proficient or met their yearly growth targets.

Finishing the year strong: 44% of scholars met their winter to spring growth targets in math and 41% in reading.

Growth across multiple years: scholars who have more longevity in our schools perform better with half of our scholars who have been enrolled for more than six years meeting the proficiency threshold.

We are training our teachers to use the data we collect to inform individual instruction. When an instructor is familiar with the state standards, they are able to tailor each scholar’s learning to fill in the gaps.
