Our schools’ strongest category was reading—and Colchester Middle School and Colchester High School’s scores were particularly strong; grade 8 had 85 percent meeting or exceeding the state’s standards, and grade 11 had 88 percent meeting or exceeding the standards.
And our schools exceeded the state’s average in every grade in math! Grade 5’s meet or exceeded rate was 81 percent, grades 4 & 7’s meet or exceed rate was 74 percent, and grade 11 ended 21 points above the state average!
So too with our writing scores; by grade 11, we exceeded the state by 22 points.
What does all of this mean?
It means that Colchester schools are performing well above the state’s academic average at well below the state’s per-pupil spending average. It means that Colchester schools are an excellent value.
