MCPS High School Rankings Based on Maryland School Report Card Scores

Maryland’s Department of Education unveiled its new “accountability system” earlier this week: Maryland School Report Cards.

Although Maryland schools have received “report cards” for the past two decades, Maryland Superintendent of Schools Karen Salmon believes the new system is more comprehensive.

Schools receive three scores:

  1. Star Rating (based on point percentage).
  2. Percentile Rank (school’s performance compared to other schools)
  3. Total Earned Points Percent (school’s total points, divided by total possible points).

These scores measure test results, curriculum access, absenteeism rates, school climate, college and career readiness, and student growth.

All in all, Montgomery County’s 25 high schools fared well on their report cards. In fact, about 70 percent of the high schools earned four or five stars.
