  • Gains in language arts achieved by our students of color were higher than our whole school’s average results.
  • Our median growth percentile was 72 in both reading and math. We performed similarly as our model school, McAuliffe International, whose scores were 75 in language arts and 74 in math.
  • We had 100% participation in language arts testing and 97.7% in math testing.
