The UW Lab School is proud of our students’ achievements and the exceeding expectations rating on the Pilot School Performance Report. Four rating categories of exceeding expectations, meeting expectations, partially meeting expectations, and not meeting expectations were assigned to each school. Schools were rated using a combination of achievement, growth, equity, and participation, based on test scores from PAWS reading, writing, and science. As a school, we will continue to look at multiple performance indicators across broad educational goals. We strive to identify improvement areas and build upon strengths to sustain high levels of achievement in all areas.
For additional information about school performance, the 2013 UW Lab School Accountability Report is available on our school web site. This annual report provides a great deal of information including: student and staff accomplishments; highlights related to the school’s participation in the National League of Democratic Schools; information in the area of Coordinated School Health summarizing school opportunities related to nutrition, physical activity, and other factors promoting health and wellness; academic achievement results from a variety of measures including PAWS, MAP, and ACT Explore; and progress towards school improvement goals. This report is part of our efforts to expand the way we approach school accountability, as well as the way it is communicated.
