A recent study by the American Institutes of Research found that students at Georgetown’s Hyde-Addison demonstrated the best gains in reading performance versus every other school in the DCPS system.
The study ranked the schools by “median growth percentile”, which quantifies the growth an average student at each school has against the average for the whole system. In other words, how much better or worse do students perform year-over-year versus other students at their grade level.
Hyde was shown to have a Reading score of 79.7% That means that the average Hyde student’s reading scores grew better than 79.7% of DCPS students who scored the same the earlier year. This was the highest “growth score” of any DCPS or charter school in the city. Good work Hyde kids!
