Students across the Wake County Public School System demonstrated steady academic progress in the 2012-13 school year, according to results from end-of-grade and end-of-course tests released November 7.
The results show that 140 out of 165 schools met or exceeded expected growth during the 2012-13 academic year. Students met or exceeded expected growth in 11 of 15 subject areas by grade level. According to the data, students also continued to perform above the state average in every subject, at every grade level tested.
“The new standards demand a lot from our teachers and our students. And our students have shown tremendous growth in the past year,” Superintendent Jim Merrill said. “I commend our teachers and students for their work, and parents for their support. I am proud of what we see today.”
