Testing Highlights 2012-2013
On Thursday, November 7 the State Board of Education approved and released all test scores for the 2012-2013 school year. With this release of scores, Mount Airy City Schools continues to be one of the top performing districts in the state. Here are some highlights:
Jones Intermediate met 100% of its annual measurable objectives and was nearly 20 points above the state average in 5th grade science.
Mount Airy Middle School met 95% of their annual measurable objectives and more than 92% of Math I students scored proficient.
Mount Airy High School met 96% of their annual measurable objectives and out performed the state average in all tested areas.
These new test scores measure a much higher more rigorous standard than we have ever had in NC. Imagine our state training for a 5K but then being asked to run a marathon on race day. Despite many challenges our students, teachers and staff made academic progress. Our teachers have shown incredible dedication and commitment in making this transition to the new College and Career READY Standards. While Mount Airy City Schools has much to celebrate, teachers, staff and administrators will not be satisfied until each of our students has reached their potential.
