    Is this based on mostly how students do in standardized tests? Also can the number of detentions, referrals and suspensions hinder a school from achieving a grade A+?

    What is the source of the school grade to which you are referring?

    Well some parents before they make a decision of where they enroll their kids, they look if the school is an A or B school. No sure what your question meant...:(

    Doesn't the district assign grades for each school? But what measurements do they use? Is it just the tests?

    This must vary in different locations. In my district, there are many factors that play into school ratings: attendance, test scores, discipline stats, parent involvement, etc.

    Ours is based on test scores, attendance, graduation rates, etc. A lot of our score is based on how the lowest 25% of our students, which is based on the previous year's standardized test scores, score on the current year's test.
