MSS Principal, Mrs Cherlyn S. Hogan, on Wednesday July 6, 2016, presented the annual report for the Montserrat Secondary School, for the 2015/2016 academic year.
The report presented highlights of school attendance, student performance, the teaching learning environment and student activities.
According to information gathered from the report, MSS had enrolled for the academic year just concluded, a student population of three hundred and thirty eight students to include 162 boys and 176 girls.
In the area of student performance and achievments, the report highlighted:
"Forty five students were examined over two hundred and eighty (286) subject entries Grades I – III passes were obtained in two hundred and twenty five (225) of them yielding a pass rate of 80.1% up from 64% in 2015.
Thirty of the thirty four (88%) of students who wrote 5 or more subjects gained passes in at least 5 subjects. Twenty four of them, (70.5%), gained passes which included both Math and English.
An impressive improvement in pass rate of 71.4% was recorded for English A, up from 56.5% in 2015. Math recorded a 67.4% pass rate also up from 50% in 2015.
Forty-nine students were examined across five subject areas namely Mathematics, English, Spanish, Integrated Science and Social Studies at the CXC’s Caribbean Certificate of Secondary Level Competence (CCSLC) examinations. 100% passes were recorded for Spanish which had not been examined since 2012. English and Integrated Science showed improvement over last year’s performance. CCLSC English also recorded a praise worthy 92.3% pass rate, up from 71% last year, while Integrated Science recorded a pass rate of 83% up from 50%. The performance in Math declined to 25%. This decline is attributable in part to the absence or not availability of Math teachers to deliver the curriculum."
