You’ll notice Fairfax County’s Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology, a Governor’s School, at 100% on all four lists. You won’t see Maggie Walker anywhere in the database, albeit the pass rates there would also put it on all four of these lists. Walker also is a Governor’s School, with a four-year program; it issues diplomas to its graduates. But VDOE does not report the SOL scores of the Walker students; those scores go, instead, to artificially inflate the scores of the high schools in the home districts of the Walker students.
