The state has released school-level CRCT scores.
The AJC has created a searchable database, so take a look and let us know how your school did.

Our school did not do well at all. Just this past year we had a great surge of technology introduced into all of the CRCT grades. I fear the technology took the place of teaching instead of enhancing teaching. Technology is only as effective as the teacher using it with his students. Having an administration be able to say, “look at all of our technology!” is not enough to make it effective. So what’s next for your school?

I looked at all of the scores and some of them seem good…
but we parents really have no faith in these scores.
Until our children are tested with the same test as other children throughout the US, and we can guarantee the test was administered honestly (no erasures)…all we can do is hold our breath until out children get into the work force or into college.
Only then will we know if our GA children got the education they deserved.

@pride- the AP Exams do just that. An A in the class and a 2 on the AP exam? Think colleges won’t notice? And not taking the AP test is another dead giveaway, too…

What happened to Cherokee Charter Academy?? This is considered a PUBLIC school. Why weren’t scores released for CCA??

@ReallyAmazed, Cherokee Charter Academy is a state-approved charter, so it is not listed with the Cherokee County schools. It is listed as an independent school district.

I looked at the scores of the schools I USED to be associated with. One is a regular public dekalb school, the other is a theme school. HOLY COW!!! The theme school blew the lid off the scores. I am so proud of that theme school and the TEACHERS and admin staff that supported those kids. What an awesome job!! So… tell me again why some people want to do away with theme schools? They obviously work.

Look how dismally Coan Middle School performed on these tests. They are in the 30 and 50 percentiles. Yet, this is the school APS chose to invest their money in. Invest in failure. Yet, when a school like Drew Charter succeeds, APS doesn’t want to allow it to exist.
I call that insanity.
