We are pleased to share the amazing results of our District 103 students' scores on the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) assessments, which are included on the 2018 Illinois Report Cards.
These assessments were administered as required by the State to students in grades 3–8 during the spring of 2018 in the areas of English/language arts and mathematics. District 103 students scored nearly three times higher than the state averages on the 2018 PARCC test.
The report cards provide information about our district and each of our three schools. You can find the report cards for our District, Daniel Wright Junior High, Half Day School and Laura B. Sprague School on the About Us section of our website and on the Illinois Report Card website.
We are honored by our students' accomplishments on the PARCC assessments, which reflect the excellent efforts of our teachers and students. Additionally, the support that students receive beyond the classroom, from parents and community partners alike, strengthens their development as young learners.
The assessment results are reflective of the great work of our teachers to provide learning experiences that challenge students to think critically and creatively about rigorous content and to demonstrate that knowledge in unique and novel ways. Our students' motivation and investment in learning create an active classroom environment where everyone is committed to excellence.
As we continue the important work of preparing tomorrow's leaders, we take this opportunity to thank our parents for fostering a home environment that focuses on education. We celebrate together, as we focus on this true mission: To provide innovative learning experiences which empower each student to excel and make a difference in a diverse and interconnected world.
