Wellesley MCAS results: English scores soar, Math & Science not so much

The Department of Education has released MCAS scores for districts and individuals schools. The Boston Globe has it all laid out nicely here.

At a glance, Wellesley students performed very well in English vs. others within the state. Math scores were less impressive at much of the elementary school level, though improved noticeably throughout middle school and into high school. Science scores were hurting across most of the elementary schools (Sprague being the exception), impressed in middle school, though were back to middle-of-the-pack in high school (10th grade).

As one reader recently pointed out, Wellesley High’s science score was way down  in a list of the top 50 Boston schools by Boston Magazine, in which Wellesley Public Schools ranked 5th overall.

    I wonder how much of the improvement in Middle and High School math scores is due to parents paying for after school Math support.
