SCHOOL PERFORMANCE
Each year, schools in North Carolina may receive several designations based on their performance on the state's ABCs tests. Those designations are awarded on the basis of the percentage of students performing at grade level and on whether students have learned as much as they are expected to learn in one year. The designations earned by your school are displayed below, followed by a brief description of each designation.

Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) Results
North Carolina has set target goals that schools must meet to make Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) under No Child Left Behind (NCLB).

AYP

Targets

Our school did not make adequate yearly progress.

We met 16 of our 17 performance targets.  

Click here for more information on AYP by student group and subject.Click here for additional information on AYP by student group and subject.

Title I School Improvement Status
Under No Child Left Behind (NCLB), schools enter Title I School Improvement status by not meeting target goals in the same subject (reading or mathematics) for two years in a row. A school in Title I School Improvement status must take certain measures to improve performance. Below is the status of the current year (2010-11) based on 2009-10 data.
Our school is not in Titile I School Improvement.
