It's no surprise to those of you who have seen Ravenswood in action that our school is amazing. Now, there is documented data to support what we all knew! In as brief a way as I know, I'd like to explain a little bit about what all of this data means.
Last year, CPS came out with it's Arts Plan in which great steps were made to ensure that all students in CPS get the dynamic and essential arts education that they deserve. In order to track the progress of schools giving this education, CPS came up with a rating system to determine how schools are doing. On a scale from 1 to 5 (1=Excelling, 2=Strong, 3=Developing, 4=Emerging, 5=Incomplete Data) each school in CPS was given a category to describe where they are in the process. I'll give you 3 seconds to guess how Ravenswood did. 3.....2.....1.....
This means that Ravenswood Elementary School is dedicated to the full, diverse, and rigorous arts education of every student that walks through our doors. We strive to provide a meaningful and creative experience day in and day out. We look to our community, arts partners, faculty and staff to push our practice and pedagogy to be the best that it can be.
So, here is the information all of this comes from.
That, as they say, is that.
