Minneapolis Public Schools (MPS) continues to see positive trends in MCA results for almost all student subgroups in reading, math and science. One of the more notable academic improvements was among students who participated in last school year's mid-year strategies, an increase of six percentage points. Additionally, student gains in both reading and math at grades five and eight significantly outpaced those at the state level. District-wide math and science results increased one percent, while reading results remained steady.
