The percentage of students that passed the exams were below average except for 7th grade algebra I with 97% passing the exam while the state average was 86%.
It would be a good idea to learn more about the curriculum since the school focuses on math and science but the percentage of students passing the state exams were below state averages even in most math courses and science. However, the school did show a growth in academic performance, so this may be a great school for your child. The best way to know is to talk with other parents before making your decision.
