JAMESTOWN – English Language Arts and math test scores at Jamestown Public School are going up.
School officials, in a press release Thursday, said scores at Ring Elementary School showed the most improvement making a 13 percent gain in ELA and 16 percent gain in math.
Two out of the three middle schools also made improvements in both subject fields.
“I am very proud of all the hard work that our teachers, principals and students did to show such significant progress,” said JPS Superintendent Bret Apthorpe. “The collaborative efforts of our teachers to focus on individual student achievement has greatly benefited our district.”
“As a district, we saw an overall improvement in math and a slight decline in ELA. However, several of our schools made incredible improvements in both ELA and math.”
Bush and Lincoln Elementary Schools were also among the highest performing schools in the district.
