The Beachwood City School District has a Performance Index score of 108.8 - the highest in the district's history - on the Ohio Department of Education's recently-issued preliminary data for district report cards for Ohio's public schools.
This score places Beachwood in a tie for 17th place among Ohio's 611 districts, and reflects a significant jump from last year's 107.4 index, which ranked 28th in the state. Beachwood ranked fourth among Cuyahoga County's 31 school districts.
This marks the 13th consecutive year that Beachwood Schools has been rated "Excellent" or better on the state report card, a feat held by fewer than 4 percent of Ohio's schools. Beachwood achieved all 26 of the state indicators, scoring above 90 percent in 25 of 26 indicators. The district and each of its buildings met Annual Yearly Progress (AYP) for all subgroups.
"We are very proud of the academic achievement of Beachwood's students," says Beachwood Schools Superintendent Dr. Richard A. Markwardt. "Thank you to you - their families - and to their teachers who helped them to achieve at this level."
