About the High School End-of-Course Tests: High school students take End-of-Course tests in six subjects: Algebra I, Geometry, English II and III, Biology and U.S. History.
Beginning in 2013-14, students will take End-of-Course tests in English language arts and mathematics that are aligned to Common Core State Standards.

Students can earn the following scores on End-of-Course tests:

  • Excellent: A student demonstrates superior performance of the course content.
  • Good: A student demonstrates mastery of course content and is well prepared for the next level of coursework in the subject.
  • Fair: A student demonstrates only the fundamental knowledge and skills needed for the next level of coursework in the subject.
  • Needs Improvement: A student does not demonstrate the fundamental knowledge and skills needed for the next level of coursework in the subject.

End-of-Course tests comprise between 15% and 30% of the student’s final grade in the subject. School districts determine the percentage. For students who were eligible for the LEAP Alternate Assessment, Level 2 (LAA 2) prior to taking their first End-Of-Course exam, the End-of-Course exam score counts for 5% of their final grade.

To earn a standard high school diploma, students must earn a score of Fair or above on three End-of-Course tests, including one in each category – Algebra I or Geometry, English II or English III, and Biology or U.S. History. Students who earn a score of Needs Improvement must receive 30 hours of remediation in the course and are eligible to retake the test at the next administration.

Students with disabilities who have passed two End-of-Course tests may be eligible for a waiver of the third exam required for graduation. Also, students eligible for LAA 2 may choose to take the LAA 2 tests to meet graduation requirements if they do not pass the End-Of-Course tests.

Open Quote This school teaches you about life skills and how to survive in the real world. It really didn't focus on test taking strategies at first but it is moving in that direction. I've been going to Fair Park High School since my freshman year and I believe that it is a wonderful school. One big problem at this school is selected administration. The main focus of fair park was to keep students out of jail and in school and now, because of an administater name Kalan Washington, more and more students are going to jail and droping out and yes they have commited crimes but the punishment doesn't fit the crime. For instance, I don't disturbing a class should earn you a trip to jail. Also the lack of teachers and the importance of this problem to the administration is a big problem. I am a junior and am taking the ACT and chemistry section of the GEE and I didn't have an actual chemistry teacher till the day after the constructed response part of the GEE test and am still without a algebra II teacher. In conclusion I find that the real problem with this school is mainly with selected faculty members and besides these flaws this is a very good and potentially rank 1 school Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
