2014-2015 Student Achievement Results

Highlights of the 2014-2015 results include:
  • An increase in the five-year high school completion rate, up 3.2 per cent over five years, and a decrease in the drop out rate
  • Accountability Pillar results from the province show improved performance, with all measure category evaluations at good or excellent.
  • Science results are very strong at the high school level, with increases in acceptable standard and standard of excellence for biology, chemistry and physics.
  • Math 30-1 and 30-2 diploma exam results have increased in both the acceptable standard and the standard of excellence. 
  • Compared to the Province, students in Grades 6 and 9 continue to do well in achieving the acceptable standard and standard of excellence on provincial achievement tests. 

"These are strong results that build on our success over the last five years,” said Michael Janz, Board Chair. “We’re hopeful that these positive results indicate that the priorities, goals and common focus we’ve identified in our strategic plan are working.

"I am pleased with these results, and so proud of the work of our staff to meet the diverse needs of kids in our classrooms,” said Darrel Robertson, Superintendent of Schools. “We’ve still got lots of work ahead of us, especially as we work together to dig deeper into our results, and make decisions in our schools about how to go even further to support student success."
