Statistics on Education in Micronesia
Francis X. Hezel, SJ MicSem Articles | education

The following lists of ranked schools are based on test results for as many years past as are available, using as many standardized tests as are given. When consulting these statistics, be cautious about equating test scores with the quality of a school. They are indicators of quality, but they are not the only indicators. For further explanation of these statistics, consult the article they were based upon, "How Good Are Our Schools?".

RMI Elementary Schools

Marshalls Elementary Schools: Pass Rates on High School Entrance Test
(1993-1999) and Scores on PILLS Test (1994-1998)

Note: Pacific Islands Literacy Level Skills (PILLS) test is designed to identify students who have failed to achieve minimal standards in English, Marshallese, and math. In the table below, the figures have been changed to represent the percentage of students who have achieved (rather than failed in) minimum standards. This will permit easier comparison with the high school entrance test results.
