The Wilbert F. Mays SDA School provides a unique environment where top academic performance is the norm rather than the exception.
In 2012 nationally standardized testing (ERB CTP4), more than two-thirds of students achieved at or above the 75th percentile, and one-quarter of students achieved at or above the 90th percentile.
Wilbert F. Mays SDA School prioritizes not just high academic achievement but also continued growth.
New students often come from programs where their potential is not being realized; almost three-fourths of new students enter with scores that are below our school-wide averages. During their first year at the school, students average an 11 percentile-point gain on nationally standardized tests.
Wilbert F. Mays SDA School keeps its administrative costs to a minimum without compromising the quality of the educational experience offered and prioritizes the efficient use of contributions to best deliver its mission, with 79% of spending going directly to the program. The school’s fundraising expenses are low at just 12 cents per dollar raised.
