Ohio Department of Education recognizes Columbus Preparatory Academy as a High Progress School of Honor


Congratulations to Columbus Preparatory Academy (a charter school managed by Mosaica Education), honored by the Ohio Department of Education as one of 37 High Progress Schools of Honor on December 5, 2013.

According to the Ohio Department of Education’s official media release, High Progress Schools of Honor score in the top 10 percent of schools as ranked by gains in reading and mathematics combined proficiency in all tested grades for the past five years. They also are in the top 10 percent for gains in graduation rate during the past five years. The department also considers Adequate Yearly Progress, Value-Added measures of student growth and Local Report Card ratings when determining award selection.

“High Progress Schools of Honor establish an educational goal for their students and continue to pursue and exceed that goal each year,” said Dr. Richard A. Ross, Ohio superintendent of public instruction. “The principals, teachers, parents and community members provide a high-quality education and believe that children can overcome significant challenges, and that they can learn.”
