Heritage has received an "A" grade for the fourth consecutive year of participating in statewide standardized testing. Factors that contribute to Heritage's ongoing "A" rating include high ISTEP scoring elementary through high school, a high percentage of students taking and receiving high scores on high school AP classes, and a high graduation rate.
The Indiana Department of Education released A through F accountability grades for Indiana schools on December 13. The number of schools receiving failing marks doubled. ISTEP scores also dropped across the state in all subjects during the last school year. Schools earning the highest ratings fell by half to 24 percent, a decline of more than 600 schools. Private schools have the highest percentage of A-rated schools with two-thirds being A- or B-rated.
While Heritage does not measure its' success or effectiveness based on state standardized testing, the "A" rating is another affirmation of the quality curriculum and strong academic environment being provided to the Heritage community.
