Hi. Why is it that Hoover Elementary consistently scores 20-40 points higher on the API tests then other Palo Alto elementary schools? This has happened for at least the past 5 years in a row.
I've heard all school board info about how all schools give the same education and instruction, that just the approach is different but this seems pretty significant.
We all agree that we have 2 top high schools, but our other elementary schools API are generally lower than Los Altos and Menlo Park.
