Stonebrae Elementary School Boasts Academic Excellence!

January 25, 2012

When Stonebrae Elementary School first opened its doors to young students from the surrounding community, the faculty and staff were determined to provide the highest level of education possible. From state-of-the-art classrooms, each with wireless internet built in, to premium sports facilities, the newly built school provides students with an unmatched learning environment complete with all the tools essential for a bright future.

We’re happy to report that the careful cultivation of the school’s state-of-the-art facilities and academic programs has paid off – evidenced by the school’s performance in state administered API scoring!

Each year the California Department of Education measures the academic performance and growth of schools on a variety of academic measures. A base score for all schools is determined to help hold schools and faculty accountable for student learning.

Then, based on year-over-year test score performance over a two-year cycle, schools in California are assigned an individual Academic Performance Index (API) score to be measured against the statewide base score. These calculations show if a school’s test score performance improved over the year or not. For the 2010-2011 school year the statewide base API score was 800. Take a look at how Stonebrae Elementary School ranked this past year:

  • The results shown here reflect the school’s Growth API for the 2010-2011 school year for all students and for each of the major subgroups of students as reported by the state.
  • The 2011 API Growth is calculated using test score results from spring 2011.

Nearly every subgroup represented either met or exceeded statewide academic expectations! We want to extend a big thank you to all the teachers and faculty at Stonebrae Elementary for their continued commitment to provide the finest quality education for the leaders of our future. And to the parents of each child, thank you for reinforcing high standards of academic achievement at home. The students would not be as successful if it weren’t for your continued guidance!
