From Thad Williamson, Director of the Mayor’s office for Community Wealth Building, on the JBC PTA Facebook group:
“. . . John B. Cary showed improvements in every area compared to 2013-14:
- Reading pass rate increased from 63% to 72%;
- History and Social Sciences from 73% to 92%;
- Math from 84 to 93%;
- Science from 71% to 74%.
As a comparison at Fox,
- reading pass score was 85%;
- History and Social Sciences 89%;
- Math 82%;
- Science 90%.
The scores for African-American students at Cary are across the board higher than those of African-American students at Fox (and much higher in math in particular). . . . . overall it looks like Cary did really well on the tests.”
