School Performance Grades

Legislation passed by state law makers in 2013 calls for the 2013-2014 School Report Cards released  State Board of Education to include a School Performance Grade represented by an A-F  letter grade based on school achievement and growth. Growth accounts for 20 % of the grade, performance accounts for 80% of the grade, and the letter grades are given on a 15 point grading scale. Our middle school grade was based on the EOG scores in Math, Reading and 8th Grade Science. 
Our school exceeded the state academic growth targets for 2013-2014 and received a School Performance Grade of B. 
See the links below more information regarding our school, report cards and national comparisons.
