Chapel Hill, Carrboro Schools Master Their ABCs

Posted by on Thu, Aug 6, 2009 at 4:56 PM

 

         Students in the Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools district passed the test during the 2008-2009 academic year. All 17 schools in the achieved "Expected Growth" status with all but two earning "High Growth" marks, based on End-of-Grade and End-of-Course exams.

         High growth means 60 percent or more of the students met growth targets. Culbreth Middle School and Frank Porter Graham Elementary were the sole institutions to not reach that mark in this latest ABCs of Public Instruction analysis.

         Glenwood and Seawell Elementary and Phillips Middle School each were dubbed as a "Honor School of Excellence" with 90 percent of more pupils performing at or above grade level. FPG was a "School of Progress" with 70 percent. The 14 others are named as a "School of Distinction" at 80 percent.
