2013 Capital City Gains on DC-CAS
Based on student progress and performance on the DC-CAS, the High School was named a Tier 1 School by the District of Columbia Public Charter School Board (PCSB). The Lower and Middle schools were not tiered in 2013 because PCSB considered them new campuses due to our significant expansion and reorganization in 2012.
At the High School, 72% of students were proficient in reading and 62% in math.
At the Middle School, 62% of students were proficient in reading and 51% in math.
At the Lower School, 48% of students were proficient in reading and 44% in math.
The District of Columbia Comprehensive Assessment System (DC-CAS) is the testing standard for all Washington D.C. students.
