Two Fowler Elementary School District schools are recognized by the NCEA as 2013 Higher Performing Schools
Recognition as an NCEA Higher Performing School indicates a school’s deep commitment to raising student achievement and putting more students on the path to college and career readiness—regardless of socio-economic barriers or any other obstacles that might otherwise impede success. These schools stand out as shining examples of what can be achieved when staff, students and parents work together toward a unified goal of better preparing students for life after high school. The two schools to receive this recognition for 2013 are:
• Fowler Elementary School – Higher Performing in Math for both growth and performance measures.
• Tuscano Elementary School – Higher Performing in Math for the performance measure.
NCEA identifies Higher Performing Schools based on one or both of two measures: 1) consistent improvement in student achievement from previous years (growth), and/or 2) an above-predicted percentage of continuously enrolled students scoring at the Exceeds level on Arizona’s Instrument to Measure Standards (AIMS).
NCEA began identifying Higher Performing Schools in 1998 and continues to annually release these lists as well as College and Career Readiness Charts for every public school in Arizona.
