WHAT A START!
Looking over the achievements of Corbett Charter School students to date, it's hard to imagine that this is 'year one'. What a standard these kids have set for themselves and for their younger siblings and friends!
Every Corbett Charter School class has its story, and many are remarkable. But it's fitting that the first group to be profiled should be the Class of 2010.
Corbett Charter School's Class of 2010 has posted an average SAT reading/math score of 1107 with 50% participation. (The national average will be around 1020, and Oregon's average will be about 1055). This mark will rank CCS among the top 10% of Oregon schools. Among our 18 graduates will be a National Merit Finalist and a National Hispanic Scholar. There will be All-State athletes and Academic Decathlon medalists. There will be active, caring volunteers and exceptional musicians. In all, Corbett Charter School's inaugural senior class is a group that more than justifies the love, guidance, worry and hope that each of us invests in our children.
What a start!
FIRST YEAR CHARTER RESULTS CONTINUED!!!
3rd Graders in our broad, K-3 classrooms have passed an average of 91% of their exams in reading and math combined. The State average is 81%.
Corbett Charter 4th, 5th and 6th graders, in their 3-year, multiage classrooms, have passed an average of 83% of their exams in reading, math and science combined. The State average is 78%.
Corbett 7th and 8th graders, working in self-contained, multiage classrooms, have passed an average of 90% of their exams in reading, math and science combined. The State average is 74%.
Corbett 10th graders have passed 77% of their assessments in reading, math, science and writing. The State average will be 60%. It is unlikely that a dozen other schools (of 300 or so) in the state will match the Charter School's rates at the 10th grade level. The Corbett School is one of those very few, by the way.
In all, 89% of reading tests, 82% of math tests, and 83% of science tests at Corbett Charter School have resulted in passing scores across all grades. Shop around. You won't see numbers like this above the 5th grade in very many places around the state.
