Northfield gets “green” rating for SPF

Northfield’s 2017 School Performance Framework results are in: We are in the green!

Northfield is meeting district expectations on the district report card which covers areas from academic achievement to parent and student survey responses. We were excited with our growth and ready to celebrate our success with our teachers, parents and community.
Specifically, Northfield meets district expectations when it comes to students performing at grade level, closing academic gaps for our English Language Learners, and closing academic gaps for our students of color. Northfield is in the blue — meaning our school exceeds expectations — in preparing students for college or a career and closing academic gaps for our students with disabilities. Read Northfield’s full SPF report card here.
