Twitchell Elementary Earns "Five Star" Ranking
We are pleased to announce that our school has achieved a "Five Star" ranking under CCSD's School Performance Framework, the highest ranking a school can earn. Our "Five Star" designation means the majority of our students are showing academic growth compared to the last school year; that the vast majority of students are meeting and/or exceeding standards on state tests; and that we are effective in closing achievement gaps between all students - regardless of their individual educational needs.
Additionally, our designation means that our school is making tremendous strides in fostering a positive learning environment for all students - this includes solid attendance, educational equity for students and parental involvement.
Our goal is to not just maintain our current performance level, but to continue to make refinements and improvements in how we educate our students. There is always room to grow!
