San Bernardino City Unified School District (SBCUSD) continued making gains on the state’s Academic Performance Index (API), with eight campuses boosting their API by 20 points or more.

“We will continue to be relentless in our pursuit of a quality education for every child,” said Superintendent Dale Marsden said. “Our Community Engagement Plan is beginning to be implemented, and that will propel student achievement to higher levels.”

San Andreas High School, which offers an alternative program for students who have fallen behind in credits, was the District standout with a 92-point jump, leading to an API of 752.

The District’s API increased two points over the previous year to 729.

In addition, Carmack School posted a 52-point growth from the previous year, bringing the API to 843. Carmack was followed by Curtis Middle School, which had a 46-point increase, giving it a new API of 743.

Other District schools making notable gains include Davidson and Monterey Elementary Schools, Arrowview and Golden Valley Middle Schools, and the Alternative Learning Center.

The API is an index that ranges from 200 to 1,000, with 800 being the state-mandated goal for all public schools. The API measures year-over-year school performance and is based on results from the California High School Exit Exam and the California Standards Tests.
