Executive Summary

February 20, 2017

APS has superb performance in some categories and mediocre performance in others. Overall, we see superior performance in White, Black and non-free and reduced lunch performance. Of course, all of this depends on your definition of superior, if we define superior as over the 50th percentile in the state, APS is superior in:

  • White Graduation Rate (97th)
  • White SOL Scores (99th)
  • White Economically Disadvantaged SOL Scores (84th)
  • White non-economically disadvantaged and non-english learner SOL scores (98th)
  • Black Graduation Rate (85th)
  • Black SOL Scores (81st)
  • Black Economically Disadvantaged SOL Scores  (78th)
  • Black English Learner SOL Scores (65th)
  • Black English Learner and Economically Disadvantaged SOL Scores (64th)
  • Not Economically Disadvantaged SOL Scores (99th)
  • Economically Disadvantaged not English Learner SOL Scores (93rd)
  • Not Economically Disadvantaged Not English Learner SOL Scores (99th)

While we see inferior performance in:

  • White English learner SOL scores (43rd)
  • Hispanic Graduation Rate (8th)
  • Hispanic SOL Scores (18th)
  • Hispanic Economically Disadvantaged and English Learner (20th)
  • Hispanic Economically Disadvantaged (6th)
  • Hispanic English Learner (18th)
  • Economically Disadvantaged Graduation Rate (18th)
  • Economically Disadvantaged SOL Scores (27th)
  • Economically Disadvantaged and English Learner SOL Scores (23rd)
  • English Learner Graduation Rate (26th)
  • English Learner SOL Scores (27th)
  • Not Economically Disadvantaged English Learner (36th)

However, if you define superior as return on investment, or in Arlington’s case, 4th in the state or above (because APS spends the 4th most per pupil in the state as shown above) then APS is superior in:

  • White Graduation Rate (4th)
  • White SOL Scores (2nd)
  • White non-Economically disadvantaged and non English Learner SOL Scores  (3rd)
  • Non-Economically Disadvantaged SOL Scores (3rd)
  • Non-Economically Disadvantaged and non-English learner SOL Scores (2nd)

While it is inferior in:

  • White English Learner SOL Scores (55th)
  • White Economically Disadvantaged SOL Scores (22nd)
  • Hispanic Graduation Rate (66th)
  • Hispanic SOL Scores (108th)
  • Hispanic Economically Disadvantaged and English Learner SOL Scores (94th)
