A comparison of the Laboratory School’s Hawai‘i State Assessment test scores in reading and mathematics with the statewide average scores for School Year (SY) 2004 are shown in Figures 1–4. On the SAT in reading (Figure 1) and in mathematics (Figure 2), greater percentages of Laboratory School students than students statewide scored at average or above-average levels in each of the four tested grades. On the HCPS tests in reading (Figure 3) and in mathematics (Figure 4), greater percentages of Laboratory School students than students statewide met or exceeded proficiency.
For SY 2001–02, 2002–03, and 2003–04, in both Grades 8 and 10, Laboratory School students were ranked first or second (with one exception) in both reading and mathematics. Third graders were also ranked first on SAT in mathematics in each of the three years, and fifth-graders were ranked first in reading in 2003–04 and in mathematics in 2001–02.
