There is no way to sugar coat this progress report: the Brooklyn High School for Global Studies received a D for School Environment, C for Student Performance, and an F in the most highly weighted category, Student Progress.
If these scores aren’t bad enough, they combine to create a big fat F.
The only bright side to this is that the middle school portion of the School for Global Studies did pretty good, earning an overall grade of B.
Probably as a result of being in the same environment, the scores are actually fairly similar however: D for School Environment, C for Student Performance, but the middle school manages to score a B in Student Progress, elevating it well above its older sibling school.
The B grade is perhaps stranger, however, given the relatively low percentages of students “at proficiency”: only 18.8% scored “at proficiency” for English, and 31.3% for math. Looks like these percentages aren’t so bad when compared to the “peer” schools though.
Whatever the explanations, the School for Global Studies clearly has some issues in the School Environment category. Let’s just hope they are able to address these effectively.
