The bottom line is: We are a results driven school. In America today, an achievement gap exists between the African American students and their Caucasian peers. At The Prep Schools, we have completely eliminated that gap. By the time our scholars reach 8th grade, they are achieving on par with the top suburban, and largely Caucasian schools districts. The proof is in the data. Those that graduate from The Prep Schools achieve at the highest of levels.
We are also incredibly proud of the progress our students make. The longer you stay at The Prep Schools, the better you do! Take a look at the difference between our sixth grade students and our eighth grade students. While all of our students are above the Ohio State Standard after one year at our schools, our students academic growth is remarkable. Congratulations to every single student for working so hard to improve every single year.
Finally, we are particularly proud of the fact that our students — primarily African American — not only close but completely reverse the performance gap between white students and African American students that is prevalent throughout the nation. Again, congratulations to everyone on their outstanding work!
Every year, the Ohio Department of Education also releases School Building Report Cards, indicating the effectiveness of the school. These report cards are based on factors such as student achievement on standardized tests, student growth on a yearly basis, and attendance rates within the school. The rating scale is as follows, from highest achieving to lowest:
- Excellence with Distinction
- Continuous Improvement
- Academic Watch
- Academic Emergency
We are proud to announce our 2010 – 2011 rating of EXCELLENT by the Ohio Department of Education. Check out the results below. To highlight to our achievement, let it be noted that 100% of our 8th grade students passed the Reading OAA test! Compare our state report to any school in Cleveland and you will find we are at the top in nearly every single category!
