Schools Demonstrate Growth Through Outstanding Test Scores
At the October 23, 2012 Board of Trustees Meeting, Educational Services reported on the 2012 Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) Program results for the District. Students continued to improve their test scores in 2011-12, resulting in a Districtwide score of 867 on the California State Academic Performance Index (API), an increase of five points over the prior year. The District is well above the Statewide average of 788.
Fourteen of the District's 20 schools have exceeded the State target goal of 800 or higher (out of a possible 1,000) on their API. In 2012, eleven of the District schools showed growth, with nine showing double-digit growth. Out of 400 schools in Orange County, three Fullerton School District schools ranked with the top schools for the highest APIs for elementary schools Fisler ranked 4th with an API of 982, Laguna Road ranked 10th with an API of 968, and Beechwood ranked 14th with an API of 960. Parks Junior High had the 18th highest API (923) out of 88 schools in Orange County for middle/junior high schools.
