In addition, the San Diego Union Tribune released an article today about the trends in the SBAC data and the impact of the pandemic on student learning. The article includes a complete list of all of the schools in San Diego County and how they fared on SBAC testing.

I know that there have been comparisons made between our District schools and neighboring schools, particularly with middle school SBAC scores. A recap of the scores for the San Dieguito middle schools and the Carlsbad middle schools compared to our scores is as follows:

School English Math
R. Roger Rowe Middle School 91 79
San Dieguito Middle Schools:
Carmel Valley Middle School 86 79
Diegueno Middle School 74 66
Earl Warren Middle School 78 73
Oak Crest Middle School 73 57
Pacific Trails Middle School 86 81
Carlsbad Middle Schools:
Aviara Oaks Middle School 78 68
Calavera Hills Middle School 65 46
Valley Middle School 65 45

R. Roger Rowe Elementary School scores are reported as 90% Proficient/Advanced in English Language Arts (a 1% decrease from the 18-19 school year) and 89% Proficient/Advanced in mathematics (a 3% increase from the 2018-19 school year).

We are very proud of our accomplishments and know that they can be attributed to:

  • Our hard work to reopen schools in 20-21,
  • COVID testing and protocols put in place to keep students in school through the second year of COVID illnesses and modified quarantines,
  • new curriculum in key areas,
  • and professional development work to continually improve instruction in the classrooms.
