School Report Card
The Department of Public Instruction publishes report cards for all public schools in North Carolina for each school year. The North Carolina School Report Card is one of the state’s most comprehensive resources for information about student achievement, class size, school safety, school technology, and teacher quality at the school, district and state levels.

Schools in North Carolina may receive several designations based on their performance on the state’s ABCs tests. These designations are awarded on the basis of the percentage of students performing at grade level and on whether students have learned as much as they are expected to learn in one year.
