We're an "A" School!
The 2012-2013 New York City Department of Education (NYCDOE) Progress Report scores are out. Williamsburg Charter High School, up for charter renewal in the summer of 2014, was awarded a grade of "A" for the 2012-2013 school year.
With a numerical score of 72.6 out of 100, WCHS outperformed 74% of schools citywide. After having the New York State Supreme Court overturn an intended charter revocation only one year earlier, WCHS earned its highest Progress Report grade ever in the School's nine-year history. A grade of "A" for the 2012-2013 school year also marks WCHS's third year of consecutive progress, moving from a "D" in 2009-2010 to a "C" in 2010-2011, a "B" in 2011-2012 and, finally, an "A" in 2012-2013.
"At Williamsburg Charter High School, we believe that all students can learn and achieve a high school diploma," says Current Principal and former Director of Special Education, Kathleen Gaffney. "Through our collaborative team effort we put systems in place so that all students can achieve. The teamwork of parents, students, staff and teachers and the support of our Board truly shows how teamwork can make the dream work. Our clear focus and teamwork has made us an 'A' school."
