In addition to the assistance and nurturing you give to your child, we encourage you to continue to support your child's learning by making sure your child attends school daily, by following your child’s academic progress through ParentVue and communicating with your child’s teacher,” said Colleen Frederick, principal.
About ADE Letter Grades
On October 31, ADE released A-F School letter grades based on data from the 2021-22 school year. The Letter Grade system measures student proficiency and annual growth in key areas including English Language Arts, Math, Science, and literacy as well as readiness to transition to the next step in their education or career. Other factors such as performance on standardized tests, attendance, special education inclusion, college and career readiness reports, and high school graduation rates are included in the score.
Estes Elementary Profile
All MUSD schools created custom profiles that provide families and the public with a snapshot of their school and include information on clubs, special classes, demographics, standardized testing grades, and more. Profiles are separate from ADE letter grades, however, they provide additional insight into each school’s culture, programs, and people.
