Laurel Hill principal: D letter grade shines light on growth areas

Published: Friday, December 27, 2013 at 04:21 PM.

Laurel Hill School's writing scores dropped from 70 to 38 percent, but it wasn't the lone school that saw a significant drop. Baker School's writing score dropped from 84 to 43 percent.

 Baker School's seven-year run as an A school ended by earning a B for 2012-2013 year.

Crestview High School maintained its A grade.

School district officials plan to bring Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate writing courses to both schools, Jackson said.

Jackson offered additional teaching positions at Laurel Hill following last year's drop from a B to a C.  

"We have put in professional development in mathematics and reading, which should be reflective in next year's grade," she said.

Jackson, a Laurel Hill School alumna, said she believes the school will rebound with a higher grade next year.
