Marysville​ ECHS number 50 on state rankings for performance index


The Marysville​ ​Early​ ​College​ ​High School​ ​has ​landed​ ​at​ ​number​ ​50 on the​ ​Ohio​ ​Department​ ​of​ ​Education’s​ performance​ ​index ranking among all the state’s schools.
Performance index​ ​is​ ​a​ ​measure​ ​of​ ​how​ ​well​ ​students​ ​scored​ ​on​ ​a​ ​series​ ​of​ ​tests.
​“Marysville​ ​ECHS​ ​opened​ ​in​ ​August​ ​2014, ​and​ ​we’re​ ​thrilled​ ​to​ ​be​ ​ranked​ ​on​ ​this​ ​list​ ​in​ ​the​ ​first year​ ​we’ll​ ​have​ ​a​ ​class​ ​graduating,”​ ​Marysville​ ​Schools​ ​Superintendent​ ​Diane​ ​Mankins​ ​said.​ ​“It shows​ ​how​ ​hard​ ​our​ ​students​ ​and​ ​staff​ ​have​ ​worked​ ​and​ ​how​ ​powerful​ ​a​ ​focused​ ​early​ ​college STEM​ ​curriculum​ ​can​ ​be.”
While​ ​STEM​ ​refers​ ​to​ ​Science,​ ​Technology,​ ​Engineering​ ​and​ ​Math,​ ​the​ ​school​ ​takes​ ​an approach​ ​to​ ​learning​ ​that​ ​focuses​ ​on​ ​fostering​ ​creativity​ ​and​ ​innovative​ ​thinking, according to a press release provided by the district. ​
The release states that the combination​ ​of​ ​a​ ​STEM​ ​curriculum​ ​with​ ​the​ ​early​ ​college​ ​program​ ​has​ ​led​ ​to​ ​success.
Marysville​ ​ECHS​ ​offers​ ​both​ ​high​ ​school​ ​and​ ​college-level​ ​courses.​ ​
By​ ​the​ ​time​ ​a​ ​student graduates​ ​from​ ​Marysville​ ​ECHS,​ he or she ​could​ ​have​ ​potentially​ ​earned​ ​as​ ​many​ ​as​ ​60​ ​college credits,​ ​which​ ​is​ ​the​ ​equivalent​ ​of​ ​an​ ​Associate​ ​Degree.
“We’re​ ​proud​ ​to​ ​be​ ​among​ ​the​ ​top​ ​in​ ​the​ ​state,”​ ​Marysville​ ​Early​ ​College​ ​High​ ​School​ ​Principal Kathy​ ​McKinniss​ ​said.​ ​“We’re​ ​setting​ ​our​ ​students​ ​on​ ​the​ ​pathway​ ​to​ ​help​ ​them​ ​explore​ ​their interests​ ​to​ ​prepare​ ​them​ ​for​ ​college​ ​and​ ​careers,​ ​and​ ​we’re​ ​honored​ ​to​ ​get​ ​this​ ​recognition.”
