Description:Teachers: Percentage of teachers who gave an overall positive response to the Satisfaction section of the DOE's 2009 School Quality Survey. The three questions were: "I am satisfied with the overall quality of this school"; "I am satisfied with how well my students are achieving the Standards"; and "I am satisfied with my school's leadership."

Parents: Percentage of parents who gave an overall positive response to the Satisfaction section of the DOE's 2008 School Quality Survey. (Due to a DOE error in the distribution of the 2009 SQS Parent Surveys, the completed surveys could not be accurately assigned to schools, and the DOE decided not to include the parent survey results in any of the 2009 SQS reports. HONOLULU Magazine used the 2008 results instead, the most recent data available. The four questions were: "I am satisfied with the variety of courses and programs offered at my child's school"; "I am satisfied with the overall quality of this school"; "I am satisfied with how much my child is learning at school" and "I feel the work in my child's classes is important and valuable for my child's future."

Students: Percentage of students who gave an overall positive response to the Satisfaction section of the DOE's 2009 School Quality Survey. The five questions were: "I am satisfied with the education I am receiving at my school"; "I enjoy coming to school"; "Overall, this is a good public school"; "I am learning a lot from my teachers"; "I like the kinds of things I am learning at school."

Math: Percentage of students whose proficiency meets or exceeds Hawaii Content and Performance Standards (HCPS III) in Math, the state DOE's baseline for determining whether schools meet academic benchmarks under the federal No Child Left Behind Act.

Reading: Percentage of students whose proficiency meets or exceeds Hawaii Content and Performance Standards (HCPS III) in Reading, the state DOE's baseline for determining whether schools meet academic benchmarks under the federal No Child Left Behind Act.

Score: Average of the five measures of satisfaction and student performance.

Letter Grade: Once we ranked the schools by overall score, we assigned a letter grade to each, grading on a curve.
