A statewide scoring system places The Museum School of Avondale Estates within the top 6 percent of public K-12 schools in Georgia and one of the top schools in DeKalb County, according to College and Career Readiness Performance Index (CCRPI) data, recently released by the state’s Department of Education.
Through CCRPI, each school earns a score based on achievement, growth, progress and additional indicators. The most recent report is based on scores and achievement during the 2014-2015 academic year.
Overall, The Museum School scored 90.6, making it the fourth-ranked start-up charter school in the state and a top-10 school in DeKalb County. The school is ranked number 122 out of 2,149 traditional public and charter schools serving pre-kindergarten through 12th grade students in Georgia. Its middle school, with a score of 93.2, ranks among the top 2.2 percent in the state, and its elementary school, with a score of 89.9, ranks in the top 6.6 percent.
“These results once again validate our academic model and reflect the commitment the entire Museum School community has toward providing a world-class education for its students,” said Museum School Principal Katherine Kelbaugh. “With our dedicated staff, hardworking students, committed board and supportive parents, we look forward to achieving even greater academic excellence and continuing to inspire our students to new heights.”
