MCAS Results for the Watertown Public Schools

Watertown High School's MCAS scores led the way in the district, while fourth graders struggled on the 2011 test.

MCAS Results for the Watertown Public Schools

Watertown's 10th graders and the English test at most levels highlighted the district's 2011 MCAS exam results, which were released by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary Secondary Education this week.

State officials consider students scoring in the Advanced (A) or Proficient (P) categories to meet the standards, while those in Needs Improvement (NI) or Warning/Fail (W/F) fall short.

Watertown High School excelled on the test, with 80 percent of 10th graders making the grade in math and English Language Arts, and 76 percent in science.

Scores on the English test were strong at all levels, especially in seventh and eighth grades where more than 80 percent met the standards.

Fourth-graders struggled, with under 50 percent getting Advanced or Proficient scores.

The lowest passing rate came on the eighth-grade science test, where only 28 percent met the standard.

Students took tests in English Language Arts (ELA), math and some grades took the science test.
