Huntsville City Schools showed significant progress on the newest A-F report cards released Thursday by the Alabama State Department of Education (ALSDE).

Overall, the district increased two points from an 82 during the 2021-2022 school year to an 84 for the 2022-2023 school year.

Additionally, 30 of the district’s 43 schools either sustained growth or increased their scores from the previous year. No schools within the district received a failing score.

“These scores are a testament to the hard work of our students, faculty and staff members, and families,” said Dr. Clarence Sutton, HCS Superintendent. “This growth is not by accident. This progress reflects our focus and intentionality in schools across the city on our journey to excellence."

Scores are calculated based on five factors including academic growth, college and career readiness, graduation rate, chronic absenteeism, and progress in English language proficiency.

HCS asks families for their ongoing support in the following areas to promote student success:

  • Ensure students are at school, on time, and ready to learn daily
  • Ask children what they learned at school
  • Encourage children and monitor their progress
  • Attend events, volunteer, and join organizations at their child’s school
  • Maintain regular communication with teachers

Scores for all schools are available on the School Report Card page of the ALSDE website.
