Fall 2012 – NECAP 
Our Fall 2012 NECAP scores were publicly released on Friday, February 8, 2013. Pleasant View had some the largest gains in all of PPSD. More specifically, while we aimed for 3% - 4% gains each year over the next 3 years in our School Reform Plan, we achieved the following this year:
 
Schoolwide – 7% increase in Reading proficiency (up from 44% to 51%)
Schoolwide – 6% increase in Mathematics proficiency (up from 32% to 38%)
5th grade –  14% increase in Writing proficiency (up from 35% to 49%)
 
Other noteworthy statistics include 4th grade gains (current 5th graders) in reading from 39% to 53% proficient/proficient with distinction (+14% from 2011 to 2012), and 5th grade gains (current 6th graders) improved in Math from 28% proficient to 44% proficient/proficient with distinction in Math (+16% from 2011 to 2012).
 
These improved test scores are not only statistically significant; they are significant of a changing culture at our school focused on rigor, relevance, and relationships. Kudos to our amazing teachers and inspiring students, and supportive families. Panther PRIDE: Perseverance: Respect: Integrity: Determination: Excellence!
