School Report Cards

North Carolina’s school report cards are an important resource for parents, educators, state leaders, researchers, and others, providing information about school- and district-level data in a number of areas. These include student performance and academic growth, school and student characteristics, and many other details.

Report cards are provided for all North Carolina public schools, including charter and alternative schools. North Carolina's School Report Cards are presented two different ways, designed to meet the needs of all users. An interactive, easy-to-navigate section is available here. This user-friendly website addresses the need for quick reference on topics that are most important to parents and educators. An analytic section is also available for a more detailed view of the data. The two areas are both designed and hosted by SAS Institute.

The 2018-19 School Report Card includes the following:

- EL progress indicator

Additional indicators will be added to the report cards later this school year, including:

Parents and others should note that the information in the School Report Card, while important, cannot tell you the entire story about a school. Other important factors — the extra hours put in by teachers preparing for class and grading assignments, the school spirit felt by families, the involvement in sports, arts, or other extracurriculars — are crucial aspects of a school community, but are not reflected on the Report Card.

Users can locate additional resources in the left navigation panel.
