Greetings! The West Burlington Independent School District is honored that your student is attending our school district. We offer a big welcome back to our returning students and an even bigger WELCOME to those students and families who are new to our school system. West Burlington ISD is proud of our tradition of providing an excellent balance of academics, activities and learning culture. We are here to serve the students and families while providing top quality instruction and support. WB is very excited to see another school year right around the corner.
The welcome newsletter is always a great platform to provide some data. The truth of the matter is we are happy with the numbers, but continue striving to get better while improving instruction and school culture each and every day. Our four-year graduation cohort came in at 92.2%. This is good, but there were four students who did not graduate with their class. The good news is by time the Department of Education published these numbers, all four of these students had met graduation requirements and were holding their high school diplomas. We all share the thought that a high school diploma opens doors of opportunity for all of our young people. The best news is our five-year cohort data reports a 100% graduation rate. West Burlington Arnold High School was able to graduate all of our students from the class of 2017, but it took four of our students a little extra time.
The West Burlington Independent School District is happy to report our Iowa Assessment results are excellent. Our students did a stellar job on the tests and our results reflect that. The 2017-2018 Iowa Assessments yielded the following results: In regard to grades 3 through 11 math scores; West Burlington surpassed all of our AEA schools except for grade 7 in which our 78% proficiency tied our AEA counterparts. The average percent of West Burlington students who scored proficient or higher was 83%, the AEA average was 74% over the nine grades, and the state average was 78%. Now you know why we described our scores as stellar. (Click Here to Continue): Read more
