OK, here we go again! This time the State of California’s Academic Performance Index (API’s) came out…and all of Foster City’s schools lead the pack in this district. All three are over the 900 mark, congratulations to Audobon School for making that increase! Both Foster City School and Brewer Island School are tied for the district’s top spot. Needless to say…it’s really impressive. Listed alphbetically above, Foster City does an amazing job when compared to others…and that includes Bowditch Middle School as well. It’s also interesting to note that FC schools outpace all of the similar schools in the vaunted communities of Burlingame and San Carlos as well. Congrats you guys!

    fyi, all those 2010 numbers are a little wrong.. the district forgot to count all the kids that had changed schools in the previous year. The note we got from the district this week says they left out about 25% of the total students, so all of those numbers are going to change a bit.

    Not to say that FC doesn’t have great schools, though.
