I am very impressed with Thomson Elementary. Principal Cummings is an amazing leader. She knows how to motivate students, empower parents and manage a talented staff. Moth of my children have been very happy at TES. My son has Downs Syndrome and the teachers are so creative in the ways they teach him and the students are so kind about his differences. The school is always clean, offering interesting family activities and the car rider teachers are incredible because whether it's freezing or pouring rain they have a positive attitude and an umbrella in hand if needed. My only regret is that my children can not stay there for their entire education. This is the best!

Although my children often complain about the lack of group involvement, they constantly compliment the extracurricular activities, as for the eldest- band. the amount of effort put into these children in their activities is wonderful.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Georgia administered the Criterion-Referenced Competency Tests (CRCT) in reading, social studies, science, English language arts and math in grades 3 through 8. The CRCT is a standards-based assessment, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Georgia. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
