Most-Improved Schools Elementary Schools

September 03, 2000

An Aug. 20 chart on schools that posted the biggest gains on the Stanford 9 test was prepared before scores were available for Long Beach Unified School District. Three Long Beach campuses rank among schools posting the biggest gains since statewide testing began in 1998. The third column lists the percentage of students at each school who scored at or above the 50th percentile (the national average) in 2000. The final column shows the percentage-point increase over two years in the number of students attaining that benchmark.
