The state Department of Elementary and Secondary Education released school and district MCAS results on Friday. In Medfield, the data resulted in an improved status for the Wheelock School, which climbed to 'Level 1,' the highest ranking in the state, based on several years of composite results.
The Dale Street School remained at Level 2 this year, also not meeting testing goals in decreasing performance gaps.
Among other schools, Medfield High School and Wheelock School are now at Level 1. Memorial Elementary School had an insufficient amount of testing data and was not categorized.
Overall, the Medfield Public Schools scores for all grades of students remained well above state averages. Eighty-seven percent of the tested Medfield students are proficient or better in English Language Arts, 77 percent are proficient or better in math and 73 percent reached that level in science and technology.
Among third-graders — the first grade tested under MCAS — 78 percent are proficient or better in reading and 82 percent reached proficiency in math. The reading score is unchanged since 2012, while the math score at that grade improved from 68 percent proficiency last year.
Among 10th graders — the oldest grade tested — 97 percent in Medfield are proficient or better in English Language Arts, 95 percent are proficient or better in math, and 92 percent are proficient or better in science and technology.
