Measuring What Matters: Our Stories of Success

The mission of Alexandria City Public Schools is to ensure that Every Student Succeeds. But what does success look like?

Measuring What Matters is a way to share with our community the incredible talent our young people have that manifests in many different ways. Standards of Learning (SOL) data is just one measure of a student’s academic success. Opportunities and successes outside of the classroom are just as important as the experience inside of the classroom.

At ACPS, we pride ourselves on preparing our students for the world, whether it’s college, a career or joining the military. Every child deserves an opportunity to be supported and engaged in a high-quality learning environment. And every child deserves to have their successes acknowledged.
