Overall, Wellesley Public School students as usual scored well on the spring MCAS tests, though a few numbers stood out for good and bad reasons (you can slice and dice the #s here in a lot more detail than we have here, including making comparisons year over year).
Wellesley High School 10th graders blew away state averages based on percent of students rated as proficient or advanced on their exams. A whopping 99% of 10th graders scored advanced or proficient in English Language Arts, whereas the overall state number was 84%. An impressive 95% scored proficient or advanced in math vs. 74% across the state and the numbers were 78% for WHS and 67% for the state in science.
Wellesley Middle School students fared similarly well in English and math, though only edged the state percentage of advanced/proficient results 41% to 39% in science.
Elementary schools generally bested the state in percent of students scoring advanced or proficient, although Hardy and Fiske 5th graders did not in science, nor did Schofield 5th graders and Sprague 3rd graders in math.
Any other numbers catch anyone’s eyes?
