We had two students who achieved a PERFECT score on one of their CST’s: Ruben Cruzin Science and Julian Castellanos in Math! Also, our very own Science teacher, Mr. Johnson, had 42% of eighth graders achieve a proficient or advanced score in Science, while Mr. Catlin, our 8th grade History teacher, had 48% percent of students score proficient or advanced! Both 6th and 8th grade had a 12% increase in the number of proficient and advanced students in English Language Arts, and 6th and 8th grade achieved an increase of 5% in math. What is even more amazing is that as a school site, 133 students improved by at least one level in Math and 187 students improved by at least one level in English Language Arts.
