Williamsburg/ James City County Schools achieve all time high test scores

Students attending Williamsburg/James City County Public Schools achieved all-time highs on their Standards of Learning (SOL) test results in every subject tested by the Commonwealth of Virginia in 2009, as the following official Virginia Department of Education test results show:

All Students in English/Reading = 91% (+2 over 2007-08)
All Students in Mathematics = 90% (+5 over 2007-08)
All Students in Science = 91% (Same as 2007-08)
All Students in History = 90% (+3 over 2007-08)
All Students in Writing = 91% (+1 over 2007-08)

"We are most pleased with the overall long-term trends now under way which have resulted in all-time highs in every subject tested by the state," said Supt. Gary Mathews.  "This is especially a tribute to our students and faculty given that the federal pass standard in reading and math has increased by 4 percentage points in each subject for each of the past three school years.  As for the NCLB Graduation Indicator, we still have work to do," concluded Dr. Mathews.

Also of note was the success of D.J. Montague Elementary School, which was in danger of having stringent federal sanctions imposed.  The students’ performance in 2008-09 avoided this possibility by posting significant gains (+6 in Reading; +10 in Math; +6 in Science), thus earning adequate yearly progress or "AYP."  The school also posted an 8-point gain in History.
