The grades are in for area school corporations. The Indiana Department of Education released their report card for 2012 and some schools are seeing improvements, while others have declined.
The most improved local corporation is Warsaw Community Schools. The corporation received an A grade for all of its schools this year. Compared to last year, only three Warsaw Schools received an A grade.
Wawasee Community School Corporation, however, saw an overall drop this year, with only Wawasee High School improving its grade of C in 2011 to an A this year. Wawasee Middle School maintained its D grade while all other schools dropped from last year’s A to a C.
Other schools in the area include Whitko, which saw its middle school drop from a B to D grade, with no change for the rest of the corporation.
Tippecanoe Valley Schools, however, saw mostly improvements. Tippecanoe Valley High School realized an A grade this year, rising well above last’s year D rating. Tippecanoe Valley Middle School also saw improvement to a C from last year’s F. Akron Elementary’s grade dropped from an A in 2011 to a C this year.
The new system is required by state law to give Hoosiers a clear and concise assessment on how well their schools perform.
