NC School Report Cards
Each year, the state of North Carolina releases School Report Cards to provide educators, parents, policy-makers, and others with common metrics and data for public and public charter school performance, student growth, and student achievement. Schools receive School Performance Grades, with 80 percent of the grade based on the school achievement score and 20 percent of the grade based on academic growth. KIPP ENC also utilizes other metrics, such as ACT scores, AP exam passing rates, and college completion rates, to measure and reflect on the success of our students and schools.
