- Solid Academic Results -- For the 2011-12 school year, students in K12-managed public schools, in aggregate, achieved 97% of the norm group gain in math and 196% of the norm group gain in reading based on the results of the Scantron Performance Series, an online computerized adaptive test used by the company to measure gains. Results for K12 private schools were broken out separately and exceed the national norm group in math and reading for all tested grades.
- The Longer Students Stay with K12, the Better They Perform on State Tests – the longer that students have been enrolled in a K12-managed school, the more likely they are to be “proficient” on state exams.
- Student Dynamics are Changing – Individualized learning is encountering a growing population of academically at-risk, economically disadvantaged, and special needs students, as well as high mobility rates, and the complexities of measuring academic progress across the education system. In particular, the company indicated that in some of its schools 50 to 70 percent of students enroll below grade level in math.
- Parent Surveys Show High Levels of Satisfaction – 88% of parents with students enrolled in K12-managed public schools indicate they are satisfied with their school. The top reasons cited by parents for selecting K12-managed schools is flexible scheduling and pacing.
