Noel Lopez became only the 2nd high school student in Georgia to pass the CSWP Exam. (Certified Solidworks Professional) The test consisted of 37 questions and 24 drafting and design tasks in a 200 minute testing window. He only missed a perfect score by 14 points. He is also the only person in the Dalton area to hold the certification. To clarify the magnitude of this accomplishment, the CSWP is the exit exam for most 4 year engineering institutions. Please congratulate him on this accomplishment! He has put the Southeast Engineering program on the map in the state of Georgia.

In Georgia, the Governor’s Office of Student Achievement (GOSA) prepares Georgia’s State, Local, and School Annual Report Cards. The Annual Report Cards contain test results as well as other information relevant to school performance toward the goals of student achievement and school completion. The Report Card is in compliance with both state and federal laws with respect to reporting requirements. GOSA partners with the Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) to produce the K-12 Public Schools Reports since much of the data comes from GaDOE.
