Posted on Oct 31, 2012 in Achievement, Gwinnett News, IPA News

Ivy Preparatory Academy has been listed as one of the Georgia Department of Education’s “Highest-Performing School,” a designation reserved for schools with the highest performance or the biggest academic gains by students in the last three years.

A “Highest-Performing School” is a Title I school among the 5% of Title I schools in the State that has the highest absolute performance over three years for the “all students” group on the statewide assessments.   A Highest-Performing School must have made Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) for the “all students” group and all of its subgroups in 2011. A school may not be classified as a Highest-Performing School if there are significant achievement gaps across subgroups that are not closing in the school.
