For a school, thriving and surviving has little to do with state test scores.  You can have a thriving school, that based on state testing results, is barely keeping its head above water. This phenomenon is due to the fact that what state tests are most accurate at measuring is wealth of the families served by the school.

 

You can have a surviving school, that based on state testing results, is seemingly very successful. This phenomenon is also due to the fact that what state tests are most accurate at measuring is wealth of the families served by the school.

 

The surviving school generally does nothing overtly wrong on any given day.

 

A thriving school does many things significantly right, every day.

 

Think. Work. Achieve.
