Greenwich’s public schools generally scored well in the new edition of school “report cards” released today by the education advocacy group ConnCAN.
Seven elementary schools earned overall A grades. They were Glenville School, the International School at Dundee, North Mianus School, North Street School, Old Greenwich School, Parkway School and Riverside School.
Cos Cob and Julian Curtiss Schools earned Bs. Hamilton Avenue and New Lebanon received the lowest grades in the district, each getting a C.
Central and Eastern Middle Schools both earned As, while Western Middle School received a B.
Greenwich High School earned a B.
ConnCAN used the state’s School Performance Index (SPI), which is based on standardized test scores, to rate schools. It also gave schools grades for how well students did in math, reading, writing and science.
In addition, it used the SPI to evaluate the academic performance of student groups in each school, including students who are African American, Hispanic, low-income, and English Language Learners (ELL).
Reflecting the ongoing achievement gap in the district along socio-economic and racial and ethnic lines, minority and low-income students’ performances generally received lower grades than their schools’ overall marks. At Greenwich High, for instance, the Hispanic, low-income and ELL student groups each received Cs.
