T means the state didn’t issue a grade because the school was taken over by a new charter operator. The state doesn’t issue grades for the first two years after a takeover of a failing school.
*School closed after 2015-16 school year
†Selective admission
‡Alternative school
^Changed charter group after 2014-15 school year
Cypress Academy, Foundation Preparatory Academy, and KIPP Community East Primary are not listed because they don’t have testing grades.

A school’s grade is based on its School Performance Score, but there are two grading scales.

High schools and combination schools (for instance, middle and high school):

A 100.0-150.0
B 85.0–99.9
C 70.0–84.9
D 50.0–69.9
F 0.0-49.9


A 100.0-150.0
B 85.0–99.9
C 67.1–84.9
D 47.2-67
F 0.0-47.1

**Correction: This story originally misreported Langston Hughes’ score. For Success Prep, the state originally reported a score of 78.9 but changed it to 80.3 after the school appealed. (Nov. 7, 2017)
