Sun Valley High School NC Report Card
Dear Sun Valley High Community:
We provide regular updates to you about your student’s academic progress by sending home a Report Card for each student. Once a year, we also provide you with updates on our school’s achievements through the North Carolina School Report Card.
This Report Card includes important information about school and student performance, class sizes, attendance, school safety, instructional resources, and teacher quality. There is also information about how our school measured against state and federal targets and the number of suspensions and expulsions in our school. Report data is available for our school district and for the state’s education system as a whole.
With this letter, I have enclosed a summary of our Report Card called the Report Card Snapshot. During the 2015-2016 school year, you will notice that Sun Valley High School’s academic performance was consistent with a school performance grade of a “B.” In addition, SVHS experienced success in several key areas to include the overall school performance grade proficiency increase of 2%, Biology proficiency increase of 2.7%, ACT WorkKeys proficiency increase of 1.7%, and Math Course Rigor proficiency increase to >95%. Overall growth was MET with a growth score of 81%, which led to an overall increase of 3.2% (-2.79 to +0.41). Expected growth was MET in Math I/Biology/English II, annual measurable objectives were all met at 100% proficiency 38/38, and advanced placement course offerings continue to rise as well. The math I EOC passing rate was 91.9% based on the NC DPI converted percentage score of 60% or higher. The biology EOC passing rate was 95% based on the NC DPI converted percentage score of 60% or higher. The English II EOC passing rate was 96% based on the NC DPI converted percentage score of 60% or higher. Also, the student population continues to grow by approximately 10% each school year. In addition to success in several key areas, SVHS performed consistently in the following key areas: college and career ready proficiency, grade level proficiency and cohort graduation rate 4yr 87%. Please visit our school’s full Report Card on the NC School Report Cards’ website at http://www.ncpublicschools.org/src/. Our school district’s report is also available on the Report Card website.
I am extremely proud of the progress that Sun Valley High has achieved during the 2015-2016 school year; however, the numbers only tell part of the story. Sun Valley High strives to provide each student with a globally competitive curriculum in an environment that promotes personal accountability, respect, and excellence. “Celebrating Success” continues to be the underlying theme for all that we do. Our displays of excellence, from academics to athletics, have transcended all aspects of the school, including clubs and personal discipline. We are proud of our success.
At Sun Valley High School, your involvement is very important to the success of our school! I encourage you to review our Report Card carefully and contact me directly to discuss any questions or concerns you may have. I also welcome your feedback regarding other interests you have in our school.
Thank you for allowing me to share this Report Card with you, and thank you for supporting our efforts to provide your child with a high-quality education.
