Middle School College Preparedness in Hawaii – Ranking ACT Scores

Sometimes I think transparency in Hawaii is literal: you can’t see it.  These data come from the Hawaii Department of Education website out of a link that I only seem to be able to access by using special filters in the Google search engine to unearth.  It does not seem to be part of the main menu.  In any case, because of the manner in which DOE manipulates the overall Strive performance index, I thought you might like to see how some of the raw data stack up.  For parents interested in which schools have students performing well on the ACT college readiness assessment, here’s the breakdown of the top eight public middle schools in Hawaii.
