Catalyst is incredibly proud to announce that Catalyst Maria received a rating of Level 1+(the highest rating possible!) and Catalyst Circle Rock received a rating of Level 1 (an increase of 2 levels on a five level scale!) on the 2015-2016 SQRP!
These scores are the highest school ratings our network has received in a decade of operation, and we are incredibly grateful for the hard work our scholars, staff, parents, and school communities committed to achieve these scores!
