    Congrats to these students.
    Seeing the posted results for Saltus, WA and BHS recently… how can we get similar numbers (if not even better) out of our public school system?

  3. Terry says:

    Great commitment.
    Well deserved.
    Future looks a bit brighter for all.

    I believe that these students are great. just a bit of a bone to pick with 100 percent pass rate. that is a bit miss leading. the course starts with much more students….. they are weeded out in the process…. the ones who take the test pass but what is not discussed is the number that did not get to the test portion.

    Wow, best GCSE results Saltus has had in a number of years. Despite all the recent controversy, things are certainly looking up academics-wise.

    Saltus has had its best academic year on record. All SGY students got into the college or university of their choice, with 12 AP Scholars. The GCSE pass rate at A* to A was around 50%, so half of all the exams passed were at that grade. The teachers are outstanding as are the students. Not sure why a Concerned Parent would be so worried about their child’s education, when the results speak for themselves. It seems a bit of a strange complaint to make. Or like someone with too much time on their hands.
