API SCORES RISE ACROSS THE SCHOOL DISTRICT

Students in Classroom.jpgThe District continues to experience upward gains in its students' test scores.   MUSD's 2010 state test scores (STAR) for English/language arts, mathematics, science and history/social science are up.  Consequently, the District's overall Academic Performance Index (API) for 2010 rose an impressive 17 points.  The District now has an API score of 831!  Since 2003, the District's API has risen by 69 points.  As a District, we are well above the state benchmark of 800.
 
Seven MUSD schools experienced double digit increases in their 2010 API scores:
 
   Spangler Elementary School rose 46 points to an overall API score of 852
   Russell Middle School rose 45 points to an overall API score of 872
   Randall Elementary School rose 38 points to an overall score of 768
   Rancho Middle School rose 31 points to an overall API score of 856
   Burnett Elementary School rose 26 points to an overall API score of 853.
   Weller Elementary School rose 14 points to an overall API score of 795
   Milpitas High School rose 13 points to an overall API score of 796.
 
Nine of the District's 12 API score-eligible schools have APIs better than the coveted 800:  Sinnott with 890; Curtner with 885; Pomeroy with 879; Russell M.S. with 872; Zanker with 866; Rancho M.S. with 856; Burnett with 853; Spangler with 852; and Rose at 821.  Milpitas High School and Weller Elementary are less than five API points away from 800.  It is very realistic that within one to two years, all schools in the District will have API scores of 800 or higher and that several of our schools will have API scores of more than 900.
