Principal’s Desk 


I recently read results of the 49th annual Phi Delta Kappa (PDK) Poll of the
Public’s Attitudes Toward the Public Schools (2017). PDK is a professional
association for educators. I would like to highlight some of the findings of the
49th Annual Phi Delta Kappa Poll.

  1. The “percentage of Americans rating K-12 education quality at both thenational and local levels – at an ‘A’ or ‘B’ is the highest it’s been since the 1980’s.” In grading public schools, 62% of parents gave public schools in the community an A or B, while 71% of parents gave their child’s school an A or B.
  2. 76 percent of respondents indicated that “advanced academic classes are highly important.”
  3. 80 percent of those polled “believe school should offer career skills and industry certificates or licensing courses in school.”
  4. When asked the biggest problems facing public schools, lack of funding was the most common answer.
  5. Respondents thought it was very important that schools offered classes in technology and engineering (82%), art and music (71%), and extracurricular activities (70%).

Academically, the 2016-2017 school year was an excellent year for Leo Junior/Senior High School. We experienced overall academic school success at all levels.

We saw a significant improvement on standardized test scores. Overall, the junior high school improved ISTEP+ scores at least 5 percentage points on math and language arts; and the 8th grade class achieved an 11% improvement on math scores.  Even more impressive, our 7th grade language arts students had the highest ISTEP+ scores among public school students in Allen County and our 8th grade language arts students had the second highest scores. ISTEP+ scores at the high school level increased 2.5 percentage points in math and language arts. The high school also showed improvement on the 2016-2017 ACT in the areas of math, reading, science, and English. Leo High School ACT scores were above the national average.

Leo High School had three students qualify as Semifinalists in the National Merit Scholarship Competition. Congratulations to Eric Fowerbaugh, Deborah Mitchell, James Swim and their families.

Indiana Department of Education should release school report cards soon. We eagerly await! We anticipate our third “A” letter grade in four years.

Academically, the 2016-2017 school year was truly an outstanding school year for Leo Junior/Senior High School!

 

Sincerely,

 

Dr. Neal Brown III
