Pendleton High School like many public high schools in the state of Oregon has been working on a variety of efforts to increase student academic performance and attendance. One of the products we’ve used that has helped launch us to unprecedented success is GEARS, on online tool that helps our teachers put the right students in the classroom at the right time. GEARS also gives teachers and administrators the data and accountability they need to make decisions based on current real time data.
Over the course of 5 years Pendleton High School has seen the following growth in the performance of our junior class as measured by OAKS:
Reading – up 25%
Writing – up 9%
Mathematics – up 30%
Science – up 14%
GEARS has also been a big part of our effort to increase student attendance from 89.4% in 2007 to 92.6% in 2012.
If you have any questions about how Pendleton High School has implemented GEARS, please don’t hesitate to call or email.
