St. Joseph Academy (SJA) received its Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) School Report Card for 2018-2019 and the results show SJA continued to exceed expectations once again. SJA’s overall score was 76.2, which exceeds expectations and is an increase from 73.2 in 2017-2018.
Other highlights from SJA’s Report Card included increases for school growth (64.2 in 2017-2018 to 78.4 in 2018-2019) and on-track and postsecondary readiness (79.7 in 2017-2018 to 82.5 in 2018-2019), both of which exceeded expectations. SJA significantly exceeded expectations in closing the gaps in English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics with an overall score of 96.2, which is higher than the state’s average of 74.2.
“We are extremely pleased with the growth we’ve seen in our students,” said Scott Hanson, SJA Principal. “It’s a testament to the hard work and commitment of our amazing teaching staff, the cooperation and support of our parents, and the determination of our students who continue to make the SJA family proud, time and time again.”
As part of the state accountability system, DPI produces report cards for every publicly funded school and district in Wisconsin. The report cards measure data in multiple areas for multiple years, including Student Achievement, Growth, Closing the Gaps, and On-track and Post-secondary success, as well as chronic absenteeism and dropout rates.
