Part 8: Academic achievement, (average test scores in reading and mathematic) and the number of suspensions for each school under study

Table 4 shows that among the 7 schools of the study, school number 3 has the highest percentage of students who belong to the category ‘proficient and advanced’ on average mathematics scores. This means that this school has more of creativeness and innovation introduced in the learning processes of the students.

Conversely, it is very noticeable that percentages of the numbers of students who are poor in mathematics were high as evidenced by 36.00% and 43.57%. This obviously requires the department of education to plan and develop a new curriculum apt for 8th Graders which would provide prime attention in the development of mathematical skills.
