A few days ago Prospect Heights Patch noted how well Prospect Heights high schools did this year on the New York City Department of Education report cards which just came out last week, and specifically that the Brooklyn School for Music and Theatre (BSMT) was one of only two (out of 4) high schools in Prospect Heights to get an overall grade of A.
The overall grade is derived from similar letter-grade scores in three categories: School Environment, Student Performance, and Student Progress. BSMT got B, A, and B grades, respectively.
What those three letter grades don’t communicate, however, is just how well BSMT did on the student performance index (check the report card here). BSMT had very high graduation rates as well as exceptionally high pass rates on the Mathematics Regents tests.
These high scores helped to give BSMT an overall index of 77.3, which is better than almost 80% of all high schools city wide.
Everybody at Brooklyn School for Music and Theater, both student and faculty, can be proud of that.
