American Renaissance School has been informed by the State Board of Education that its students exceeded their EOG growth projections for the second year in a row. The Statesville charter school earned a B grade on this year’s School Report Card.

"ARS is extremely proud of its students and teaching staff for this remarkable achievement!" the school administration said in a news release. "With a 21-year legacy in Downtown Statesville, American Renaissance School maintains its vision to be the best choice for public education in North Carolina. The combination of our rigorous curriculum and exceptional faculty and support staff has been proven to result in student success."

North Carolina schools use growth as one metric to measure school performance. Expected growth describes the expected increase in each individual student’s score each year. While individual students may score below grade level, they may still exceed their growth projections. Growth is a reliable measure of a school’s effectiveness, more so than grade level proficiency alone.

Exceeding the growth projection shows ARS’ commitment to academic excellence, the school said.
