Thurgood Marshall Academy students continue to significantly outperform city averages and the school remains one of the best high schools in the District of Columbia, based on 2015 PARCC scores. Thurgood Marshall Academy’s tenth graders participated in the Geometry and ELA II exams. The PARCC exam is more rigorous and presents a fuller picture of student learning and is therefore considered to be a better indicator of college and career readiness for students. Results are scored on a level of 1 to 5; a Level 3 indicates that students are “approaching” readiness, while a Level 4 indicates “attainment.”

In ELA, 56.6% of students earned Level 4 or higher and 77.1%  earned a Level 3 or higher, outperforming the citywide averages of 25% (at or above Level 4) and 42% (at or above Level 3). In Geometry, 13.1% earned Level 4 and 59.5% of students earned a Level 3 or higher, outperforming the citywide averages of 10% (at or above Level 4) and 34% (at or above Level 3). Additionally, more than 58% of students labeled as “economically disadvantaged” scored at or above a 4 in ELA, as compared with the city average of 16.5%.
