Posted September 19, 2006

My son has attended WPS for 2 years. So far his instructors have been excellent in providing him with the best education (academically, emotionally, socially and physically). We moved to Waynesboro after the (2005-06) school year had begun and his teacher would give him 'special' books/gifts that helped him feel like he really belonged! It was wonderful. There is even someone at the front of the school (outside-rain or shine) to greet parents and children. We are always greeted with a smile and a wave. They have well rounded experiences for the children (including music opportunities, PE art, etc.) The teachers have assistants who I know make a world of difference in helping the children's day go much smoother and help make the most of their educational experiences. I am proud and grateful that my son attends the best school in the United States! We couldn't ask for anything better.

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.
