The teachers and staffs at this school work hard to see that each student has a positive learning experience each day. They also take a special interest in each child to see that he or she feels good about themselves everyday. It is a great school.

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.
