FAIRFIELD — All but one school in the Fairfield-Suisun School District improved or retained its state ranking on standardized tests, according to state data released Thursday.
The California Department of Education ranks schools from one to 10, with 10 the highest score, on how students performed on the state tests. It also compared each school to schools around the state with similar demographics. In this category, all but three schools improved or retained their ranking.
The rankings were for tests taken in 2011, which the Daily Republic compared to rankings from 2010. Five schools — B. Gale Wilson, Crescent, Dan O. Root, Fairview and Suisun elementary schools — all improved by two points in the rankings, the biggest jump within the district. Nelda Mundy Elementary scored a 10 while Suisun Valley Elementary scored a nine.
