Schools are about results and as we all know, the definition of results covers a broad spectrum in public education. We believe a true measure of our progress lies in how well we are doing with our students over a period of time – socially and academically.
Academically, in the absence of a statewide tool that reliably measures academic growth, HHG-managed schools have chosen to administer the Northwest Evaluation Association (NWEA) Measure of Academic Progress (MAP) to its students. NWEA is a norm-referenced test (e.g. measures how well our students are doing compared to other students – a “normed” group) that measures broad skills in broad areas of knowledge. Critical to our students and families that enter our schools significantly behind grade level, NWEA helps us determine how well we are doing with our students over time
We are proud of our progress and are highlighting below the results we have achieved relative to math and reading during the 2013/2014 school year. As a testament to the exceptional instructional delivery that is being performed in our managed schools, we are also highlighting the unbelievable enrollment increase our schools have experienced, collectively, since our first school opened in 2010.
