Extended Programming Details
Raw data measures student performance on standardized tests. Not all schools take the same standardized tests. Direct comparisons between different tests should not be made.
Students meet teachers in the yard (weather permitting) for arrival and dismissal. Students are expected to wear the school uniform and follow the District's Student Code of Conduct. We seek to give parents tools that help them to become active participants in the education of their children. How is the rating for School Incidents calculated? This rating represents the reportable incident count per 100 students. Reported suspensions and expulsions are not factored into the rating for School Incidents. Learn more about GPS ratings methodology here.
