School Report Cards
We provide you with regular updates about your student’s academic progress by sending home a Report Card. Once a year we provide you with updates on our school’s achievements through the North Carolina School Report Card.
This Report Card includes important information about school and student performance, class size, attendance, school safety, instructional resources, and teacher quality. There also is information about how our school measured against federal Annual Measurable Objectives (AMO) targets and the number of suspensions and expulsions in our school.
Each school receives a performance letter grade. These performance grades are comprised of student achievement (80 percent) and growth (20 percent). For some schools that meet or exceed expected growth, the growth calculation will lower their letter grade.
For the school term of 2018 - 19, we received a score of “F.” Our school’s Report Card can be found on the NC School Report Cards’ website at https://ncreportcards.ondemand.sas.com/src/school?school=32Q000&year=2019&lng=en. Additionally, our school’s Report Card can also be found on our website www.reachingallminds.com .
In viewing the school’s report card you will find information regarding student performance, performance on end-of-grade and end-of-course testing, school discipline, school safety, funds spent per student, student demographics, teacher qualifications, school and class size and principal qualifications.
As you review the school’s report cards, I encourage you to look deeper into the information provided, beyond the school’s performance grade, for a more accurate reflection of the quality education received in our schools. Just as no single grade tells the whole story of a student, neither does this grade tell you everything about the performance of our schools or the opportunities we provide.
The letter grade, numbers, and data represented on our Report Card only tell part of our story. Currently, we service kindergarten through eighth grades. This year we have expanded to include career exploration, financial literacy and an orchestral band! We have also made the decision to transition to a new language arts and math curriculum to better support our teachers. School wide our team has committed themselves to a growth/ownership mindset. All of our efforts have moved toward identifying strengths and weaknesses, providing meaningful assessments, and maintaining consistent and meaningful feedback in all areas that will improve the operations of our school.
We are very proud of our students and their growth and achievement, the faculty and staff that we have assembled, as well as, the improvements our facility has undergone. These gains are evidenced in our school’s Report Card and our school’s overall climate. We look forward to continued growth and improvements as we strive toward excellence!
Reaching All Minds Academy truly values your involvement and recognize how important it is to the success of our school. I encourage you to review our Report Card carefully, then feel free to contact me directly to discuss any questions or concerns you may have regarding the Report Card. I also welcome your feedback regarding other interest you have in our school.
Thank you for allowing me to share this information with you and for supporting our efforts to provide your child with an authentic educational experience!
