Campbell School is Middlesex County Leader in Standardized Testing Scores

| 3 Comments
The NJ Department of Education School Report Cards for the 2007-08 school year have been released.  While there will be many line items to review and discuss over the next several weeks, we're happy to report that Campbell School is #1 in Middlesex County for the percentage of students scoring at the Advanced level on three out of four standardized Math and Language Arts assessment tests.
 
Of the 156 third graders tested last year, 14.7% scored at an Advanced level for Language Arts Literacy versus a state average of 4.6% advanced scorers.  And in Math, 58% of the same third graders scored advanced as compared to 33.4% at the state level.
 
The 161 fourth graders tested resulted in 3.7 advanced in Language Arts Literacy versus a 4.6% advanced state average (and in this category we ranked third in the county), but again for Math, 54.7% of our fourth graders were advanced versus 40.5% on a state average.  Fourth graders are also given a science assessment test and scored 56.9% advanced versus a state average of 39.4%.
 
An additional point to consider is that the student body in Campbell is larger per grade than most other grammar schools in the state and the administration to student ratio is larger. 
 
Congratulations to Mr. G., the staff at Campbell, all of the students and their families.

Maybe we should be asking why the fourth grade language arts scores are below our own average score for that test, instead of patting ourselves on the back for the others. For the past few years we have had around 10% of our kids score advanced proficient on that test.

Didn't last year's third graders still learn language arts in their homeroom, rather than from their reading teacher? Maybe the longer combined period for language arts/reading is not working out as planned. It doesn't seem to have helped those fourth graders.

That's fantastic news! We're lucky to have such a great school with such great teachers for our young students!

Congratulations! Some good news about our schools. :)
