(CMR) Wesleyan Christian Academy located in West Bay has received a failing grade according to the latest school inspection report issued yesterday. This comes one day after it was disclosed that Triple C also received a failing school report.
The school is judged weak overall because there were serious weaknesses in the school’s curriculum;it was too narrow and the weak resources and sequencing of science and non-core subjects led to weak progress in those areas.
The high school(Grade 7 to 12) was also a serious weakness of the school because students’progress was weak. The school’s own assessment data and external Stanford 10 SAT results corroborates that attainment and progress are weak in the high school.
Teaching was judged to be weak in elementary and high school. Only a majority of the quality indicators have been judged satisfactory. Leadership and school self-evaluation were judged satisfactory because most recommendations from the previous inspection have been acted upon, especially in the Kindergarten.
Student progress in mathematics and English in the Kindergarten and elementary school was satisfactory because assessment was used by teachers to meet the needs of most students. Students’ behaviour for learning, civic and environmental understanding, health and safety was good in the Kindergarten and elementary grades. Support and guidance in the Kindergarten was also good.
