The North Carolina State Board of Education just released the 2010 ABC Reports.  The ABC program measures academic progress at North Carolina's public schools, using standardized end-of-grade tests in reading and math for grades three through eight and end-of-course tests in seven high school subjects.   

This year, the Chapel Hill-Carrboro schools again led the state in most areas of student achievement.  Every district school but one made High Growth, seven schools were named Honor Schools of Excellence, and another three were named schools of Excellence.  

Honor Schools of Excellence earn the designation if 90 percent or more of their students are proficient in math and reading.  These schools are:  Glenwood, Morris Grove, Rashkis, Scroggs, Seawell, Phillips and Smith.  The Schools of Excellence are:  Culbreth, Chapel Hill High and East Chapel Hill High. 

Six schools were named Schools of Distinction with 80 percent or more of their students proficient in math and reading.  Schools of Distinction are:  Carrboro Elementary, Ephesus, Estes Hills, McDougle Elementary, McDougle Middle and Carrboro High.

Jodi,

 

Very impressive results and certainly competitive with Cary!  I personally like both areas even though they are both so different.
