Clover Park School District’s Hudtloff Middle School has been named one of 104 “Great Schools” by Phi Delta Kappa, Washington, in collaboration with the Center for Educational Effectiveness, for sustained improvement in student achievement as measured by seven years of Washington Assessment of Student Learning test scores.
Hudtloff is in the top 5 percent of highest improving schools at the middle school/junior high grade level in Washington state.
Over the past seven years, Hudtloff has seen dramatic improves in reading, math and writing, specifically in seventh and eighth grade scores. In 2003, 42.5 percent of Hudtloff seventh-graders met standard in reading. In 2009, 69.6 percent of students met standard—an increase of 27.1 percent. In 2003, 24.2 percent of seventh-graders met standard in math. In 2009, 55.6 percent of students met standard—an increase of 31.4 percent. In 2006, the first year of eighth-grade reading, 64.2 percent of students met standard. This year, 86.8 percent of eighth-graders met standard—a gain of 22.6 percent. Eighth grade math scores also jumped 18.5 percent over a three year period.
“I am so proud of my students and staff,” said Moureen David, Hudtloff Middle School principal. “They have worked extremely hard to continuously improve in all areas of student achievement—especially reading and math. They truly deserve this special recognition.”
David and her staff will be honored along with other “Great Schools” at a state awards luncheon in late September.
“Great Schools” represent the top 5 percent of elementary, middle and high schools whose students have shown outstanding growth in both reading and mathematics skills during a seven-year period.
