Student Performance Update

Chicago International Charter School has made significant progress toward its goal of closing the achievement gap between the performance of our students and the performance of their more economically advantaged peers.

This is most evident in our students' performance on Northwest Evaluation Association (NWEA) testing. During the 2013-2014 school year, the average student who attended a CICS elementary campus was achieving at or above the national average as measured by the NWEA Measure of Academic Progress (MAP) on both growth and attainment measures.

In the 2013-2014 school year, CICS increased the overall percentage of students meeting projected growth targets on the NWEA reading and math scale. Spring 2014 NWEA data suggest 62% of students in reading and 67% of students in math have made their individual growth targets.
