Huntington Beach’s elementary schools kept their test scores significantly above county averages, with a spike upward in science results, while the Huntington Beach City School District inched upward across the board, according to results released this week.
Results from this year’s Standardized Testing and Reporting, better known as STAR, program were released by the state last week.
Only the raw test results are available now, but processed information based on these scores will be released over the weeks to come; that data is used by the state to judge academic progress of schools and districts, and it can affect their funding.
The Huntington Beach Union High School District was closer to county averages, but improved slightly in all areas compared to last year. All scores were close to the county average, except for math, which was significantly lower than the 50.9% proficiency rate — a score that has lagged county figures for years.
