Area Schools Get Graded

By  | 

One of the biggest things on the minds of school officials all over the state are the just released test scores and their schools' achievement levels.

Among those that fared well was Newton County.

"We are very happy pleased with our scores and we know where our weakness is," said Newton County superintendent Billy Pierce. "Our high school was less than a .1 percent of being a Level 5 school."

Although Newton County's elementary and high schools both met a Level 4 exemplary achievement, Pierce said he feels that in areas such as math, there is work to be done.

"It does not stop here," said Pierce. "We are continuing to work hard so that we can achieve that Level 5 status."
