About 33.3 percent of Bard High Early College School students passed annual English language arts assessments in 2018 and 66.7 percent of students failed, according to a Maryland State Wire analysis of the latest Maryland schools report card.

The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers, or PARCC, is administered to third- through eighth-graders in Maryland, testing them in reading and math based on Common Core standards.

According to Bard High Early College School English language scores, 24.9 percent met expectations and 8.4 percent exceeded them. Students whose results are in either category are considered ready to move on to the next level and are most prepared for college or work.

The Maryland State Department of Education did not provide exact figures for some groups of Bard High Early College School students because those groups included less than 5 percent of students who tested in the school. The analysis includes a range where exact totals can't be calculated.

Another 31.7 percent approached expectations, while 22.1 percent partially met expectations and 12.9 percent did not meet them. Students who scored in these categories are not ready for the next level.

The school's results fell below state averages. In Maryland, 31.9 percent of students met expectations on the reading and writing tests and 9.4 percent exceeded them, putting the percentage of students who passed at 41.3 percent. The rest – 58.7 percent – failed, with about 22.9 percent of students approaching expectations, 17.8 percent partially meeting expectations and 18 percent not meeting them.
