Sayre: a CPS Level 1 School

sayrelevel1This is old news to some, but good news worth mentioning here: Based on standardized test results and other criteria used to rank schools, Sayre Language Academy has earned Chicago Public Schools’ “Level 1″ designation.

Sayre was awarded 30 of 42 possible points in the assessment, a score of 71.4%, putting it in 141st place (within the top third) of the city’s 481 CPS and charter elementary schools. 58.7% of Sayre’s students met or exceeded goals on the 2013 ISAT test (171st of 481 elementary schools) Both these rankings place Sayre the highest of all CPS and charter elementary schools in the Galewood/Montclare area. Congratulations to Sayre students, teachers, staff, and administration for their hard work to improve the school!
