Sunrise outperforms other schools on state test

Sunrise Middle School outperformed other California schools with similar demographics on the state CAASPP tests last spring, the state of California reported today.

36.7% of Sunrise students scored proficient or higher in English, and 26.56% in math – compared to 31.91% in English and 19.09% in math statewide – for schools with low-income Latino populations. Students statewide, including from affluent schools, scored 46.66% proficient in English and 34.62% proficient in math.

Also – in another great achievement – nearly twice as many Sunrise students scored proficient on the state English Learner (ELPAC) exam as English Learners statewide: 31.34% as compared to 16.50%! Sunrise also scored much better on both exams (the CAASPP and the ELPAC) than nearly all of the other charter and district middle schools in downtown/East San Jose – in some cases twice as well. This was true for English Learners and special education students as well as the whole student population.

Sunrise attributes its strong scores to a well qualified and passionate staff, hard-working students and highly supportive parents.
