Porter Ridge Middle School NC Report Card
Greetings Porter Ridge Families and Friends,Thank you for taking the time to visit this site and learn about Porter Ridge Middle School. It is a dynamic school that promotes academic success in a positive 21st century learning environment. Our students receive exceptional classroom instruction from highly qualified teachers who are dedicated and caring professionals. Our primary goal is to meet the academic, social, emotional, and cultural needs of all our students.Porter Ridge participates annually in North Carolina’s READY Accountability Program, which provides important information about all North Carolina public schools, charter schools and alternative schools that participated in state assessments. The NC Report Card includes information about school and student performances, class sizes, attendance, school safety, instructional resources, and teacher quality. Our school’s full Report Card can be found on the NC School Report Cards site.Our school’s End of Grade (EOG) assessment data historically has shown that our students are making academic progress. Through hard work and a commitment to excellence, our students and teachers have achieved several accomplishments that we are extremely proud. For the twelfth consecutive year, more than 95% of our Math I students passed the End of Course (EOC) Test. Also, the number of students performing on or above grade level increased six percent in the 2016-2017 school year, which is our largest increase since the implementation of the Common Core State Standards. In addition, our students met 100% of Annual Measurable Objectives (AMO) Targets.Test scores are an important method used to measure accountability and we are pleased with our students’ academic achievements. However, we still have more work to do in our efforts to prepare all students for success in a globally competitive society. As a result, our staff will participate in ongoing professional development aimed at helping them develop challenging, rigorous, and relevant curriculum for all students. In addition, teachers are using data to identify students who need academic enrichment as well as academic support. We are focused on meeting our students' diverse learning needs by integrating proven instructional practices with innovative 21st century instructional techniques and strategies. Likewise, we've developed a comprehensive Literacy framework dedicated to increasing our students' reading proficiency. Also, through a focus on attendance and PBIS, we are partnering with our school community to ensure all students' academic, social, and emotional growth.Please visit our informative and engaging school website at https://www.ucps.k12.nc.us/Domain/35to read all about the exciting things happening at Porter Ridge Middle School.Sincerely,Brian Patience, Ed.D.Principal, Porter Ridge Middle School
