Ratings reflect academic performance and graduation rates.
(PALM SPRINGS, FL) APRIL 5, 2016— The G-Star School of the Arts is pleased to announce that the school has received an A rating from the Florida Department of Education.
To calculate the rankings, schools are measured for performance in English language arts, math, science, and social studies. There are also metrics for graduation rates and acceleration success, which measures how students perform in advanced placement and other classes.
Out of more than 200 schools in Palm Beach County that were graded, G-Star was one of about 80 that achieved an A rating.
Over more than a decade since it was established, G-Star has established itself as a leader among Palm Beach County charter schools. The school routinely outperforms more traditional high schools in metrics for reading, mathematics, and science. About half of all students have a 3.5 G.P.A. or better, and one in five has a 4.0 G.P.A. About 97 percent of students graduate and they have parlayed their academic success at G Star into scholarships at some of the country’s leading performing arts programs at schools like UCLA, NYU, Boston University, Syracuse University, Florida State University, and USC.
