Pinkerton students make gains in reading, writing test scores
The scores rose sharply in writing, going up 15 percent, and increased by 3 percent in reading, according to administrators.
It isn’t easy, but all of the hard work in the classroom is resulting in improved reading scores, Harper said.
As for math, Pinkerton students scored at approximately the same level as the rest of the state, Harper said.
To help students who may be struggling with math, the school has hired a specialist to work as a math coach. Math isn’t an easy subject for many of students, not just at Pinkerton, but at high schools across the state, Harper said.
“It’s not just taking a quadratic equation and factoring it, it’s an involved scenario,” Harper said.
As a real world example, he said, he recently ordered three cords of wood. When he checked the delivery, it seemed a little light, and he wasn’t sure if he had received three full cords. But after performing some calculations, he realized the order was correct.
