The Hawaii State Department of Education announced that more public school students are graduating on time and enrolling in college based on a new report card system.
The DOE released its first annual Strive HI Performance System results Monday, designed to measure the efficiency and productivity of the state's public schools.
It also shows an increase in reading and math proficiency amongst the state's public schools.
Information for this report was gathered from the previous school year, 2012-2013, and measures achievement, growth, readiness and achievement gaps to understand schools’ performance and progress.
The list of schools ranked in this study can be found at the DOE website by finding the list on the right side under "Related Downloads".
In that list Manoa Elementary scored the highest under recognition schools while Hahaione Elementary scored the highest in its category for continuous improvement schools, the largest of the four categories.
Previously, the DOE adopted the No Child Left Behind system implemented by the federal government from 2002 - 2012.
