February 4, 2020 – Roswell High School has recently earned two prestigious honors, recognizing the school for its successes.
In December, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp announced the 2019 School Awards. Roswell High School was named a Silver school based on a three-year average College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI) Progress Score that ranks schools in at least the 93rd percentile. The awards are developed by the Governor’s Office of Student Achievement and approved by the State Board of Education.
In addition, the State Department of Education recently released its annual list of schools that are designated as “Beating the Odds.” According to the press release, a statistical analysis compares a school’s actual performance on the CCRPI with the performance of schools across the state with similar characteristics. Schools performing higher than similar schools are labeled as “Beating the Odds,” and Roswell High School has been named as a “Beating the Odds” school. For 2019, 36 percent of schools in Fulton County were given this designation compared to 30 percent in 2018.
Both accolades come on the heels of RHS’ recent announcement of several areas of improvement including higher scores by students on the Georgia Milestones test, SAT and Advanced Placement exams, an increase in the CCRPI score and a higher graduation rate.
“I am so proud to be the principal of Roswell High School, and our continued success,” said Principal Robert Shaw, Ed.D. “We have not only smart, hard-working students, but also dedicated faculty, staff, volunteers and community members investing in our students and their well-being.”
