MODEL LABORATORY SCHOOL
Model Laboratory Schools did well on the statewide scoring, with the middle and high schools earning the highest scores among all county schools. Both school were designated “distinguished.”
Model’s middle and high schools actually showed a decrease in overall scores from last year. However, the scores were still high enough to place them in the 92nd and 96th percentiles, respectively.
Model Laboratory Elementary School ranked fourth among the county’s 12 elementaries. It is designated a proficient school because it ranks in the 82nd percentile statewide. It also is a progressing school because it exceeded its annual score by 4.1 points.
“Model teachers and students are pleased with their continued strong performance on state and national assessments,” Director James Dantic said in an emailed statement.
Dantic pointed out that the students’ ACT school composite score was 23, which is the “highest in school history and places this year’s senior class among the top in the state,” he said.
The elementary school students’ performance also increased its ranking 19 percentage points from last year.
