GLOUCESTER CITY, NJ (November 2018)(CNBNewsnet)--The GreatSchools.org released its report on the test scores of the Gloucester City High School grades
7-12 recently. The report revealed the district's 4-year graduation rate at 94 percent which is four percent higher than the state average of 90 percent. However, their review of other categories shows the district continues to fail the majority of subjects and categories.
From the introduction of the GreatSchools.org report on Gloucester City High School.
This school is rated below average in school quality compared to other schools in the state. Students here perform below average on state tests, have below average college readiness measures, are making below average year-over-year academic improvement, and this school has below average results in how well it’s serving disadvantaged students.
School superintendent, Dr. Dennis Vespe, was asked if he wanted to comment on the report. As of today we are still waiting for his response.
Some of the categories and their scores are listed below. The full report can be viewed here.
GreatSchools.org states, "Test scores don't tell you everything. What can be even more revealing of a school's performance is how much students improve year-to-year.
