About 52 percent of Hawthorn Middle School South students passed annual English language arts assessments in 2018 and nearly a half of students failed, according to a Lake County Gazette analysis of the latest Illinois schools report card.

According to Hawthorn Middle School South English language scores, about 38 percent met expectations and 14 percent exceeded them. Students whose results are in either category are considered to be most ready to move on to the next level and are most prepared for college or work.

Another 27 percent approached expectations, while 15 percent partially met expectations and 6 percent did not meet them. Students who scored in these categories are not ready for the next level of schooling, according to the test.
