2015 RBJ Schools Report Card

The 11th edition of the Rochester Business Journal Schools Report Card is an examination of area schools. It has changed in a number of ways since it debuted in 2005. At first, the Report Card examined only Monroe County schools. By the third year, we’d added a separate edition for schools in Ontario County. Five years ago, we merged both into a combined publication for Monroe and Ontario counties.

Last year, we significantly revised the approach we take to examining the schools’ performance. With the same intent—to provide vital information on public and private schools in each county while avoiding subjective analysis—we put the spotlight on performance benchmarks for academic achievement and effective use of taxpayers’ dollars.
