EAGLE schools in the Arizona region measure outcomes in several key ways, with a commitment to continuous improvement:
Because parental involvement is key to a child’s success, we regularly survey our parents and seek their input. Here is what our parents tell us:
- Families feel welcomed when they enter school
- Children feel safe at school
- Parents are well-informed about school events
- Parents hear from their child’s teacher on a regular basis.
EAGLE South Mountain is among the highest performing schools in its district and was named among the top three finalists in the state for “Charter School of the Year” in 2011, out of 524 schools.
Students in EAGLE Arizona schools consistently outperform the local district averages by more than 20 percent on state assessments.
Above and beyond the state-required tests we administer, EAGLE schools have joined more than 7,000 schools serving 8 million scholars in offering the NWEA MAP assessment for elementary and middle grade scholars.
The NWEA MAP assessments help teachers understand the amount of learning growth a child makes in a given academic year. For all students, and especially those who enter our schools behind in a given subject, we can use this assessment to measure their progress and make adjustments if necessary.
“Look how much you’ve grown this year!”
EAGLE scholars make tremendous strides in one school year. And when compared with the average growth of their peers nationally, EAGLE scholars really shine. The NWEA MAP data enables our teachers to celebrate growth with our scholars and their parents.
The graph below depicts the percent of scholars meeting or exceeding their expected growth targets. Nationally, 50 percent of students using this assessment system meet or exceed their growth projections. The national average is a comparison to all 8 million students that take the NWEA MAP assessment, regardless of socioeconomic status.
EAGLE schools achieved more growth in the 2015-16 school year than the national average for growth in both reading and math
