The state rates individual schools from one to five with five being the highest rating.

 

92 percent of Bend LaPine's schools were rated above average.

 

Culver Middle School saw dramatic improvement in its scores in the last year.

 

Superintendent Stephanie Garber.

 

"Two years ago we had a low rating.  The Department of Oregon put us on a "watch list" and with that comes a pot of money that can be used to boost your school and they used the money well.  They went and looked at everything at successful school districts to help make sure our school is a success."

 

This year Culver Middle School got the highest rating of five.

 

Superintendant Garber says the school put more of an emphasis on reading and literacy and there is a great effort to keep tabs on struggling students to make sure they don't fall through the cracks.
