SCHOOL BOARD WATCH: Buncombe School Rankings


The grades are based on standardized end-of-grade tests in reading and math for grades three through eight, science in grades five and eight and end-of-course tests in three high school subjects. High schools are also evaluated on their graduation rate, ACT and ACT WorkKeys results and percentage of students who complete Math III.

It’s important to know that schools are being graded on a curve easier than students must meet, with an 86 out of 100 still earning an A.
