By Local Labs News Service | Jan 7, 2019


About 78 percent of Young Magnet High School students passed annual math assessments in 2018 and nearly a quarter of students failed, according to a Chicago City Wire analysis of the latest Illinois schools report card.

The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers, or PARCC, is administered to third- through eighth-graders in Illinois, testing them in reading and math based on Common Core standards.

According to Young Magnet High School math scores, about 27 percent met expectations and 51 percent exceeded them. Students whose results are in either category are considered to be most ready to move on to the next level and are most prepared for college or work.

Another 0.9 percent approached expectations, while none partially met expectations and none did not meet them. Students who scored in these categories are not ready for the next level of schooling, according to the test.

Test results at Young Magnet High School, which enrolled 2,157 students in 2018, surpassed state averages.

Statewide, 31 percent of students passed the test and 69 percent failed.

Of students statewide who passed, only five percent 'exceeded' expectations.
