Download from the Northwest group. We are consistently in the top 25% of schools (they only segment by quartiles).
There is a new index from the Office of Accountability that was introduced with the plan for the Renaissance Schools. The School Performance Index (SPI)is calculated using a different algorithm to compare schools 1. Relative to the District Overall and
2. Relative to Similar Schools. The SPI is reported on a 1-10 scale (1 being the best). http://webgui.phila.k12.pa.us/offices/a/accountability/school-performance-index-spi

We are in the 2 ranking, the top 20% of all schools. And ranked 4 among like schools. The SPI page allows comparison of scores etc to similar schools in the area.
