CROWN POINT | Indiana Department of Education released accountability grades for 2013-2014 and designated Crown Point Community School Corporation an "A" corporation for exemplary academic achievement.

Indiana's new A-F model holds schools and corporations to higher standards and provides a picture of their performance by incorporating student academic growth and graduation rates, as well as college and career readiness, as measures of success.

Letter grades for high schools are calculated based on performance in algebra 1 and English 10 end of course assessments, student improvement, graduation rate, and college and career readiness indicators such as advanced placement, international baccalaureate and industry certification exams or earning college credits. Letter grades for elementary and middle schools are based upon English/language arts and math ISTEP+ performance, participation and improvement as well as student growth.

Crown Point Community School Corporation: A

Crown Point High School: A

Colonel John Wheeler Middle School: A

Dwight D. Eisenhower Elementary: A

Lake Street Elementary: A
