RALEIGH — The N.C. State Board of Education last week released performance grades for public and charter schools during the 2018-19 school year.

No school in The Wake Weekly coverage area received a grade of F, although some were scored a D or found not to have met growth expectations.

Statewide, the number of schools earning As or Bs ticked slightly upward.

The scores list performance grades of every area school followed by the prior year’s grades, listed in parentheses.

Each school is assigned a letter grade indicating its overall performance. The grade takes into account achievement — how well students did on tests and other criteria — and to a lesser extent, growth — how much students improved over the course of the year.

The list below also includes each school’s growth status. School growth is measured compared to the average growth of schools statewide. Schools that exceeded academic growth are said to have progressed far above average. Schools that did not meet academic growth were measured to be below average.

Graduation rates are listed for high schools.

An online web portal, ncreportcards.ondemand.sas.com, includes more detailed information including scores in reading, math and biology, among other analytics.
