Midwest City High School released its new letter grade report card today to parents and its community members, as part of Oklahoma's new A-F School Grading System.
MCHS received a letter grade of B, which reflects several different factors, such as test results from all students, growth factors that compare test results from multiple years, along with whole school performance factors such as graduation rates, advanced coursework, college exam participation and performance, AP exam performance, school surveys, and parent and community engagement.
The new A-F School Grading System was adopted by the Oklahoma State Legislature and signed into law in 2011 under House Bill 1456. This is the first year for the new report cards based on the system outlined in this legislation. House Bill 1456 defines the grades under this system as the following:
1. "A" means schools making excellent progress. (9% of schools in the State.)
2. "B" means schools making above average progress. (48% of schools in the state.)
3. "C" means schools making satisfactory progress. (34% of schools in the state.)
4. "D" means schools making less than satisfactory progress. (8% of schools in the State.)
5. "F" means schools failing to make adequate progress. (1% of schools in the State.)
If you have any questions about the new A-F Grading System, or our school's grade, please feel free to contact me at 405-739-1741. Thank you for your continued support and assistance in making sure that all of our students are College, Career, and Citizen Ready!
