School rankings above average

CMAS exams The percentage of Steamboat Springs elementary students scoring in the two highest levels for social studies is more than double the state average, according to the 2015 Colorado Measures of Academic Success (CMAS) exams. More than half of local fourth graders showed strong or distinguished command in social studies, compared with 21.8 percent statewide. In science, 61.8 percent of fifth graders showed strong or distinguished command, compared with 34.8 percent statewide. Seventh and eighth grade students also scored well above state averages “To be in double digits above state averages is a tribute to everybody involved in the system,” says Marty Lamansky, district director of teaching and learning.

ACT/Advanced Placement exams In spring 2015, local high school students excelled in two forms of assessments known for predicting college readiness — the Colorado ACT and Advanced Placement exams. Scores in ACT tests in English, math, reading and science were all up from 2014, when scores dipped only slightly. Overall, the district has maintained steady scores above state averages.
