Stilwell School of the Arts earned a Gold level recognition and Elite Scholars Academy received a Bronze. The two schools were among the of 142 that were so honored.

The awards are part of Georgia’s Single Statewide Accountability System (SSAS). Highest Performing schools exhibit high academic performance by earning a three-year average College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI) Achievement Score in at least the 93rd percentile. In addition, the three-year average CCRPI Achievement Gap Score must be at or above the 75th percentile in the state to ensure the performance of the bottom 25% of a school’s students is not lagging.

For the Platinum or Gold award tiers, schools must earn a CCRPI Single Score of 90.0 or above in all three years, while Silver and Bronze award winners must earn a minimum CCRPI Single Score of 80.0 for all three years. Schools must also be excluded from the Georgia Department of Education’s (GaDOE) 2015 Priority or Focus School list.

“We are proud of Stilwell and Elite Scholars for earning this well-deserved recognition,” said CCPS Superintendent of Schools Dr. Morcease J. Beasley. “I commend everyone associated with each school for their dedication to ensuring that their graduates will be college and career ready.”

“Based on our students’ performance as reported in the recently released 2016-17 CCRPI results, we are looking forward with great anticipation to the appearance of additional Clayton County Schools on the Governor’s list of Highest Performing Schools,” he added.
