Adequate Yearly Progress
According to U.S News & World Report, it is one of the nation's best large high schools.
See which school met Adequate Yearly Progress for Lake, Porter and area charter schools.
SOUTH HOLLAND | Elementary School District 151 administration released student achievement information that showed the schools in the district continue to improve.
Twenty-eight schools in Lake and Porter counties are among 188 in Indiana named 2009-10 Four Star Schools. Thirteen private schools earned the honor alongside about 10 percent of the state's 1,808 public schools.
PORTAGE | Central Elementary School Principal Gaye Lindsley and her staff believes in the true meaning of "no child left behind."
Eighteen percent of all high schools in Indiana made adequate yearly progress under the federal benchmark, and even fewer met the guideline in Northwest Indiana.
DOLTON | When Thornton Township District 205 officials announced Sept. 23 that Thornridge High School would become a freshman center and Thornton and Thornwood high schools would be converted to upper-grade academies, that was all that was said.
Local school leaders don't want to whine and bellyache, but the truth is few can determine why so few high schools across the state are not making Adequate Yearly Progress, a federally required performance target.
