Classical Charter Schools proficiency rates near the top in New York City
In the 2013-2014 state tests, our school significantly outperformed our school district, New York City district schools and New York City Charter Schools as a whole. We had about twice the proficiency rate as district schools and about five times the rate of District 12, where South Bronx Classical Charter School is located. Importantly, the results above also include District 26, the highest performing Community School District in New York City, and Chappaqua Central School District, the highest performing district in New York State. We include these because our goal is a world class education, in which our scholars can attend the colleges of their choice, pursue careers and enjoy all the liberties afforded to the educated.
Classical Charter scholars strong across benchmarks
We use a variety of benchmark assessments to measure scholar outcomes. State tests only assess scholars in third grade and up, so we find the Terra Nova (a McGraw Hill standardized test) and DIBELS (Dynamic Indicator of Basic Early Literacy Skills) assessments helpful for assessing scholars in grades K-2. We also measure reading growth in every grade using Fountas & Pinnell running records. Additionally, the state offers a science test in 4th grade which helps us assess if our science program is on track.
