PRLog - Sep. 30, 2011 - SAN DIEGO -- The latest test scores are in and all three Del Sur neighborhood schools – Del Sur Elementary, Oak Valley Middle and Del Norte High – continue to rank exceptionally high within the Poway Unified School District, widely acknowledged as the best district in all of San Diego.

“Across the board, Del Sur’s schools achieve phenomenal scores within an extremely competitive district,” said Bill Ostrem, president and CEO of Black Mountain Ranch, developers of Del Sur. “At Del Norte High School, scores increased by eight points, making the Nighthawks the top high school in the district.”

Here’s how Del Sur schools stack up in the most recent Growth Academic Performance Index (API).

•  Del Norte High School earned 864, the highest API score among all five Poway Unified School District high schools. In only its second API ranking, Del Sur’s hometown high school is at the top of its class.

•  Oak Valley Middle School scored 909 in the API, second among the district’s middle schools for the second year in a row.

•  Del Sur Elementary School scored 944 on the API, more than 57 points above the district’s average elementary school score and well positioned in the Top 10.

With scores ranging from 200 to 1,000, API measures academic growth based on student performance on the California Standards Test (STAR) given last spring to students in grades two through 11.

Located within walking distance of many Del Sur homes or within a short bike ride or drive, Del Sur Elementary, Oak Valley Middle and Del Norte High are within the Poway Unified School District, one of the highest-ranking districts in the county and state. The award-winning district oversees 25 elementary schools, six middle schools, four high schools and one continuation high school.

All PUSD comprehensive high schools, middle and elementary schools exceeded the state API target of 800, a goal the state set for all schools to reach by 2014.
