Congratulations to Pinnacle Classical Academy! Students at the Shelby, NC public charter school performed well in 2020-21, despite the pandemic. Such findings were evident when the state released 2020-21 test results recently.
In numerous instances, Pinnacle’s passing rates were 20 to 30 points above the state average. A press release from the school features a comparison table with passing rates by grade and subject.
Pinnacle’s press release notes:
Students at Pinnacle Classical Academy had significantly higher passing rates on North Carolina’s 2020-21 end-of-grade and end-of-course tests than the statewide average, according to data released in September by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction.
In a year in which only 45.4% of students across North Carolina scored at or above Achievement Level 3 (grade-level proficient), 70.6% of students at Pinnacle Classical Academy did so.
Especially noteworthy: 58.5% of Pinnacle’s economically disadvantaged students passed EOG and EOC tests. This figure compares to just 28.8% of their peers across the state.
