The Seattle School District recently released the report card for all of the schools within the district. All of the schools were scored 1-5 (1 the lowest and 5 the highest) based on a multi-faceted scoring system that looks at absolute performance and growth performance, not just test scores. Schools that were scored a 5 had a high absolute performance and high growth performance. In total, 12 schools received this honor including Thornton Creek, Wedgwood, and View Ridge. That means 40% of the top schools are right here in the Wedgwood-area! Due to these high rankings, Wedgwood-area schools will have greater flexibility in additional improvement strategies, teacher training, setting school planning goals, and discretionary spending.
There were 19 schools that scored a 4, which is also really good. These schools include Bryant Elementary, Laurelhurst Elementary, Eckstein Middle School, and Roosevelt High. Nathan Hale High received a score of 3.
