Your School; Its Score

Pennsylvania School Performance Profile scores are in, but how is your child’s school doing?

Not only the score, but the data behind it, varies by school. Some measures, such as grade 3 reading proficiency for a high school or SAT/ACT readiness scores for an elementary school, simply don’t apply. Others, such as “closing the achievement gap” indicators aren’t applicable this year, as they require calculating the difference from this year’s baseline scores to measure.

Scores are representative of last school year. Grade levels at the school in the 2012-13 school year are given in parenthesis.
