As you know, all schools participate in State-wide testing in regards to the parameters set forth under “No Child Left behind” (NCLB). Each year, we are required to report out what those results are. The official results published by the State can be found here while listed below is further explanation of our AYP results.
MEHS did not make AYP this year for the first time ever. While we raised our scores significantly from 2010 to 2011, the AMO (SBA passing bar) also went up. We made AYP in all areas except in LEP in Language Arts.
· The AMO went up from the 09-10 school year to 10-11 school year. (The AMO will continue to go up each year until the passing bar reaches 100% in 2014)
· The Language Arts AMO went up from 77.18% to 82.88% for the 10-11 school year.
· The Math AMO went up from 66.09% to 74.57% for the 10-11 school year.
· For the 10-11 school year, we raised our proficiency in Language Arts 1% - up to 81%.
· For the 10-11 school year, we raised our proficiency in Math 12% - up to 73%.
· For the 10-11 school year, LEP (Limited English Proficient) we lowered our proficiency in Language Arts 3% - down to 65%.
· For the 10-11 school year, LEP (Limited English Proficient) we raised our proficiency in Math by 7% - up to 60%.
· Our LEP population in grades 9 &10 for the 10-11 school year was 46 students out of a total testing population of 175 for grades 9 & 10. This demographic of 46 LEP students did not perform as well as expected in Language Arts, so therefore we did not make AYP in this area.
Our individual grade level and subject level SBA scores are shown below compared to the State average. As mentioned before, our scores rose considerably and most of our scores are nearly 10% higher than the State average. Science is still below the State average, but they have risen dramatically from the students’ 8th grade scores.

10th SBA Proficient
Results from the 10th HSGQE are found below. These scores are also well above the State average – especially in the Math area.
