GCS Students Perform Well on “Nation’s Report Card” National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) Results Released Today

Fourth and eighth graders in Guilford County Schools are performing better than, or as well as, students from large city districts across the nation in reading, according to a report released today. GCS eighth-grade students also posted significant gains in math.

The 2019 National Assessment of Educational Progress, or NAEP, report shows that in reading, GCS fourth graders performed better than their peers in large city schools, and on par with other public- school students nationally. GCS fourth-grade students scored better than 18 urban districts in reading.

GCS eighth graders performed better than their peers in large city schools and higher than 14 other urban school districts in reading. Only one other urban district outperformed GCS eighth graders in reading.

“The NAEP results indicate that our strategic investments in curriculum, instructional materials and supplies, and professional development for educators, particularly in English and language arts, are gaining traction in our schools, but we still have significant work to do,” said Superintendent Sharon L. Contreras.
