    One-third of New York City's public high schools have earned an A on their latest report cards.     

    That's down from last year when 38 percent of high schools got A's.     

    This is the fifth year that the city Department of Education has given out progress reports for schools.     

    The high school grades are based largely on graduation rates and student performance on New York state Regents tests.     

    The 2010-2011 grades released Monday do not include college readiness measures that have been calculated for the first time.     

    Those numbers show that just 25 percent of students who entered high school in 2006 were fully prepared for college four years later.     

    The data will be included in the 2011-2012 high school progress reports that will be released next year.
