Almost Another 90-90-90 School Here in DC!

Yes, almost another 90-90-90 school, where the kids are almost all of color and poor, and yet their test scores are somehow amazing.

This one is Sharpe Health School.

Twenty-four out of 25 (96%) of the students are Hispanic or Black.

Only 80% of the kids (20 out of 25 tested) are on free or reduced-price lunch, so we don’t quite hit the mark there.

Last year, 100% of the students were somehow deemed Advanced or Proficient in reading, and 93% Advanced or Proficient in math. Whoever bubbled in the students’ scores missed a few answers this year, because the scores seem to have slipped. This year, only 96% were Advanced or Proficient in reading, and “only” 79% were Advanced or Proficient in math.

Not quite sure how they manage that miracle, since this, like Mamie D. Lee, is a school for students with all sorts of learning and physical handicaps.  Judging by the students I saw when I visited the school, it is clear to me that some of them cannot physically bubble in the answers without help.
