Madison County High School exceeded the state average on the recent Georgia High School Writing Test, with 95-percent of the school’s first-time test takers passing.
Another 13 percent were recognized in the “exceeds” category.
“All schools in our system have given writing a high priority,” said Madison County School Superintendent Dr. Allen McCannon. “Our 11th grade writing scores represent the hard work of students and teachers in our entire system. Exceeding the state average was a performance goal of MCHS. We are very excited that MCHS has met this goal. The STARS program and the Writing Extravaganza are examples of where the teachers at MCHS have gone the extra mile to help our students be successful.”
MCHS principal George Bullock was also pleased with the recent results.
“So often, I’m approached and questioned about Madison County and I have many reasons to brag and give credit to our fine staff, and we consistently are having results and evidence to support this,” wrote Bullock in a congratulatory note to his staff. “I am most proud of our teachers and even more proud of our students who have taken advantage of the education and opportunities here at Madison County High School. A job well done!”
