Congratulations, Horatio High School!

DESE is excited to recognize schools that  demonstrated improvement in Overall ESSA School Index Score Increases, Weighted Achievement Increases, and Value-Added Growth Increases. Congratulations to these schools for their efforts to improve student performance!

The Schools on the Move campaign celebrates schools that demonstrate improvement on recent state and federal accountability reports. DESE will highlight different schools that showed progress. Our very own Horatio High School is among the schools recognized!


2021 Value Added Growth Increases

The school Value Added Growth score is an average of students’ growth scores which are based on each individual student’s growth toward his/her expectation (as calculated from previous history of achievement and the current assessment). Schools that report a growth score of 80 are schools where students, on average, are growing in their learning as expected. Five hundred thirty-one (531) schools earned 80 or more points for student growth. Schools that report a growth score above 80, particularly those that are one or two standard deviations above the mean, should be recognized for accelerating student learning. The schools listed below earned growth scores two standard deviations (2.0 SD) or more above the mean. Great Job!
