Our Test Scores Improve Dramatically

The following article was taken from the Lost Coast Outpost. You can link to the article here.

"Last spring and for the first time, California schools administered the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) test, part of the Common Core initiative, which replaced the Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) system of yesteryear. Students in grades three through eight and high school juniors were given online tests (bye bye, bubbles) divided into English and mathematics sections"

"STATEWIDE (3,663,369)
English: 44% of students met or exceeded the state standard; Math: 33% of students met or exceeded the state standard."

The Lost Coast Outpost then ranked schools in Humboldt County. In the Elementary School section Pine Hill School was ranked 12th out of 57 schools. We scored higher than any of the Eureka City Schools, Cutten, and the Eel River valley schools. We are proud of our students and the teachers who worked so dilegently to prepare them for this new style of testing.
