The Brecksville-Broadview Heights School District earned an overall rating of five stars, the highest a district can receive, on the 2023 Ohio School Report Card.
The report cards analyze performance in six areas: achievement, progress, early literacy, gap closing, graduation and college, career, workforce and military readiness (this component will not be rated until 2025.) Schools receive a rating of one to five stars in half-star increments.
Superintendent Jeffrey Harrison said Brecksville-Broadview Heights’ rating demonstrates a significant achievement from last year to this year.
The district also elevated its scores in certain metrics. Its overall rating means the district significantly exceeded state standards in all aspects of academic achievement.
“Our Performance Index, which measures the test results of every student districtwide, is an impressive 106.5, demonstrating nearly a two-point increase from last year and continued improvement since coming out of the pandemic,’’ Harrison said.
Results in other test categories significantly exceed state standards for academic excellence and the opportunity to learn.
“Academic excellence is our top priority and BBHCSD will continue its pursuit to significantly exceed state standards,” Harrison said. “Over the last several years, the BBHCSD has continually gotten stronger, and we will continue to strengthen. Congratulations to everyone in our Brecksville-Broadview Heights City Schools family.” ∞
