Three Neenah Joint School District schools' recent state report card scores ranked among the top 25 schools statewide at their respective level.
Among elementary schools, Alliance Charter School ranked 17th with its 94.0 composite score and Tullar Elementary School was 20th overall with its 93.3 score. About 1,400 elementary schools were included in the data compiled by American City Business Journals.
At the middle and junior high school level, Horace Mann Middle School ranked 23rd overall with its 86.1 score. About 400 middle schools and junior high schools were included in the rankings.
All three Neenah schools received “Significantly Exceeds Expectations” ratings on the report cards. Four other Neenah schools were also in that category as Clayton, Coolidge, Lakeview and Wilson Elementary Schools all earned the distinction.
Schools are graded on four priority areas: student achievement in reading and math assessments, student growth in year-to-year improvements, gap closing between specific student groups and on-track and postsecondary readiness. Each public school is graded on a 0 to 100 scale and it should be noted these scores are not a “percent correct” measurement.
