THIS MAY BE THE BEST SCHOOL IV EVER SEEN IM FROM ROME AND I MOVED HERE 2 YEARS AGO AND I LOVE GAYLESVILLE SCHOOL
—Submitted by a parent


Posted August 5, 2010

During my elementary years, I can say that the elementary school was outstanding. Also, from 7th through 12th grades, while the football and basketball programs struggled, several other sports programs did very well. Most importantly, the education that I received was excellent. After I graduated in the mid-2000s and went off to college, I found that Gaylesville prepared me well. I am now a honors graduate from a nationally highly acclaimed university, and have the teachers at Gaylesville High School to thank!

About the tests


In 2011-2012 Alabama used the Alabama High School Graduation Exam (AHSGE) to test high school students in reading, math, language, biology and social studies. High school students must pass the AHSGE in order to graduate. The AHSGE is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Alabama. The goal is for all students to pass the test.

The different student groups are identified by the Alabama Department of Education. If there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.
