The Crosby S. Noyes Education campus which is situated in the north of washington has shown a great amount of transformation and progress in just two years time. Only 10 percent of the students of Noye’s has scored the advanced or proficient in math on the standardize tests in the year 2006 as required by the federal no child left behind law. After 2 year that is in 2008 58% of the students have reached that level and the school showed the same gains in reading. It shows that the standardized test scores have been improved dramatically. The U.S department of education named the school in northeast Washington as a national blue ribbon school because of the remarkable turnaround. There were around 264 public schools nationwide that has collected the award in the year 2009 and the Noyes is one among them. A special interest was taken for Noyes by Michelle Rhee who is the chancellor of the D.C school. She works more for the betterment of the school and now it serves preschoolers through eight grades and it is an example that how the sweeping changes. Her work makes the transformation of even the lowest performing Washington schools to become the champion.
Michelle Rhee has rewarded the staff of Noyes for boosting the scores twice in 3 years in the year 2008 and in 2020. The reward of 8000 dollar bonus has been given to the teachers and 10000 dollars for the principal which is really a noteworthy one. The test scores and its proficiency rates rose faster than the average score of other D.C schools and thus its has aroused question about the test scores for the years between 2006 and 2010. The proficiency rates of the Noyes have fell further than average when scores dipped for most of the elementary schools in the district in the year 2010. The classrooms of the Noyes had extraordinarily high numbers of erasures on standardized tests which is very much based on the data secured and documents under freedom of information act of D.C. The consistent pattern said that the wrong answers were erased and changed into the right answers. There are 103 public schools that have had erasured rates which surpassed the D.C averages at least once since 2008 and Noyes is one among them. McGraw Hill testing company in D.C has detected the erasures.
