PAUSD: South Palo Alto kids/schools -- wow
Original post made by SouthPA Mom on Aug 9, 2013
At Palo Verde, 80% of 2nd graders scored advanced in math, and 68% in English. At Hoover, 86% scored advanced in math and 77% in English.
This is much higher than the rest of Palo Alto, though Palo Alto did well over all, with an average of 68% scoring advanced in math, and 54% in English. Duveneck, for example, had 51% scoring advanced in math, and 51% in English. Walter Hayes was 52/47 and Addison was 50/59.
So, two questions. (1) What's up with South Palo Alto kids/schools? And (2) Why do we persist in offering standard math curriculum to a set of kids who are so clearly exceeding the norm?
