Made public Thursday, this year’s School Performance Profile includes for the first time the scores from the new Pennsylvania System of School Assessment tests for grades K-8 that educators say are more rigorous than the old exam. And because the PSSA and other standardized tests, the Keystone exams for high school students, make up such a large part of the profile score, some districts said they expected a lower profile scores. (Only high schools were included in the profiles last year.)

City Charter High School in Downtown, which enrolls roughly 620 students — nearly 70 percent of them low-income — sent a press release out Thursday afternoon touting its School Performance Profile score of 89.8.

“This is our highest SPP score ever,” and the highest among high schools in the city of Pittsburgh, said CEO and principal Ron Sofo. “We don’t think we’re all that, but we do believe that we’re walking that talk with integrity, which is what charter schools were initially envisioned to be.”
