Improvement at meant all four public elementary schools in the Rosemont area met a statewide standardized testing target for the first time since the scoring system was created in 1999, according to figures released Wednesday.
The figures show the Academic Performance Index (API) of Marshall, , and Elementary Schools all top the state goal of 800.
However, James Marshall was the only elementary school in Rosemont to see an improvement this spring over its previous year's results. It increased by 17 points to reach an API of 812, while the three other schools all saw slightly worse results than the previous year.
Sequoia fell the furthest, dropping 43 points to an API of 814. However, once a school reaches the state API goal of 800, it's only expected to maintain a score of 800 or better.
The figures released Wednesday by the California Department of Education also measure the proficiency of students in English and language arts, as well as math. In those categories, Golden Empire, Isador Cohen and James Marshall missed their overall goals in English and language arts but met them in math. Sequoia missed both overall goals.
