Sig School in the news

The Courier and Press printed "Signature School touts scores:"

Signature High School scored higher in ISTEP and SAT scores than schools in the Evansville-Vanderburgh School Corp. this past school year.

The school also has fewer minorities and a wealthier student body than the other schools, Signature's annual report indicates.


Signature became a charter school last year and this has been its first full year of operations. Charter schools are publicly financed (it received nearly $1 million in state and local property taxes) but are exempt from many of the rules that apply to other public schools.

Here are some stats presented in the rest of the article (in table format, thanks to yours truly):

SAT score1,1701,035
ACT score24.520.7
ISTEP Pass%10064
girl/guy ratio2:11:1

% free/reduced lunch1144
