About the Top 10s

MinnCAN ranks schools in key areas so parents can compare schools

to one another. We use these public school rankings to generate Top 10

Lists, which show the top-performing schools in seven different areas:

ƀɠ Low-income student performance

ƀɠ Black student performance

ƀɠ Latino student performance

ƀɠ Asian student performance

ƀɠ Native American student performance

ƀɠ English-Language Learner student performance

ƀɠ Performance gains*

Each subgroup’s performance score is an average of their reading and

math proficiency at the highest tested grade level in that school.

In order for a school to be on the Top 10 list for a major subgroup

(low-income, black, Latino, Asian or Native American), the student

body it serves must reflect the statewide student demographics for that

subgroup. For example, Latinos represent 7 percent of Minnesota’s

population. For a school to be on the Top 10 list for Latino student

per-formance, therefore, at least 7 percent of its students must be Latino.

The statewide student demographics

for all subgroups** are as follows:

37% = Low-Income

10% = Black

7% = Latino

7% = Asian/Pacific Islander

*

There are no performance gains at the high school level because reading and math are only tested once)

**

No demographic threshold was used for schools on the Native American Top 10 list because there were not enough schools in each grade level that reflected the statewide demographic of 2 percent.

About MinnCAN

Minnesota’s achievement gap—the persistent and significant disparity

between the academic achievement of low-income and children of color

and their white, middle-class peers—is the most urgent social and

eco-nomic problem facing our state. We have some of the country’s largest

achievement gaps between rich and poor kids and black and white kids,

as well as the lowest high school graduation rates for children of color in

the United States. The price of letting these kids slip through the cracks

will be a drain on our communities and our state.

Public schools are the cornerstone of our democracy. Our future is

in-extricably linked to the education of our children—all of them. MinnCAN

is advancing the movement to fundamentally reimagine our public

schools through smart, meaningful public policies. We will not rest until

every Minnesota child, regardless of race, ethnicity or class, has access to

a great public school.
