Missouri School Rankings
Show-Me Institute’s Missouri School Rankings provide information about school performance at a school and district level. Rankings are based on student performance and academic growth. The interactive and user-friendly portal is an important resource for parents, students, policymakers, educators, members of the media, and others,
Report cards are provided for nearly all Missouri public schools, including charter and alternative schools.
Missouri Schools Rankings are available here.
The rankings use data from the 2018-19 school year and include ten categories of performance. These categories are:
- Achievement Levels in English/Language Arts or Math
- ACT Composite Score
- Adjusted Achievement and the Difference Between Actual vs. Expected
The Rank is determined by putting the schools or districts in order from the highest value of the graded item to the lowest value. The school or district with the highest value would receive a Rank of 1, meaning that they performed the best of all of the schools or districts that had scores for that item. The denominator displayed for each Rank is the total number of schools or districts that had valid scores for that item. In some cases, several schools or districts have the same value on an item and, therefore, they would receive the same Rank. If multiple schools or districts had the lowest possible score for an item (for example, if 0% of their students scored Proficient or higher in math), then they would share the lowest possible rank. In this case, the lowest possible rank would not be the same as the total number of schools or districts with valid scores on that item (the denominator of the Rank). For example, if 100 high schools had valid graduation rates and 10 schools had the lowest rate of 70%, then those 10 schools would all share the Rank of 90/100.
