The class of 2017 at Athens High School has one more thing to be proud of; they earned the highest ACT scores in the district for the past five years and showed progress in every subject area.
“The hard work of our students, parents and teachers is showing as our students continue to make steady progress,” said Superintendent of Athens City Schools Tom Gibbs. “We continue to work together and focus on the important work of helping every learner to reach new heights every day.”
Not only does the five-year trend report show continued progress for Athens City Schools’ students, but it also shows that this progress is outpacing the state average scores. “At Athens City Schools we care about our students and focus on meeting their unique needs and learning abilities to find the best possible solution for every student,” noted Gibbs. “That dedication to meeting the needs of every student is what makes our staff and our school system so unique.”
The ACT report also shows students in Athens City Schools compared to the state average in terms of college-readiness projections. Athens High School students are showing high percentages of students who are demonstrating a strong ability to earn good grades in college level courses. In addition, Athens students are out performing the state average in every category.
“We are excited about this tremendous growth as we know it comes after years of hard work and dedication to excellence,” explained Gibbs. “Knowing that our students are prepared for college and are set up for success after graduation is what this is all about, and as a community we can all take great pride in this success.”
