Thomas jefferson high school

  1. 1. Thomas Jefferson High School By Daniel Ranalli
  2. 2. Mission Statement  To develop students who are actively involved in the school community and who are prepared for the opportunities and challenges they will face throughout their lives.
  3. 3. The Big Question  In actuality, is the academic performance of our students in line with the academic goals of our mission statement?
  4. 4. Actual Math Scores  85% of students exceed or greatly exceed the state standards for mathematics.  The school’s collective score on the AP Calculus AB examination for the past few years has remained steady at approximately 3.1 (out of 5).
  5. 5. Goals  Raise the percentage of students who exceed or greatly exceed expectations in math from 85% to 90% by 2013.  Increase the average AP score on the AP Calculus AB examination to 3.7 by 2013.
  6. 6. Our plan for improvement  Increase the duration of each math period in grades 9 and 10 from 45 to 55 minutes. All math classes will meet everyday.  The abovementioned action should also improve the AP scores. Given the increased time, certain key concepts will be introduced in the formative years of math.
  7. 7. Reading Scores  82% of students exceed or greatly exceed the state standards for reading comprehension.  10% of students are uncomfortable or very uncomfortable using English as their primary language.
  8. 8. Goals  Raise the percentage of students who exceed or greatly exceed expectations in math from 82% to 92% by 2013.  Reduce the percentage of students who feel less comfortable communicating in English from 10% to 4% by 2013.
  9. 9. Our plan for improvement  Form a special focus group for those students who have most difficulty with reading. Students will replace two gym periods per week with two class periods dedicated to reading.  An afterschool ESL program has been formed to aid students whose native/primary language is not English.
