North Whitfield Middle’s CCRPI score is 81 earning them the Gold Award in the Great Gains category for exhibiting high growth in student achievement because our academic growth over the last three years has been in the top 5% of schools in the state. North Whitfield Middle earned this award because we placed in the 97th percentile statewide in the average College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI) Progress Score over the last three years. This award also means that we remained in the same CCRPI Single Score range over the last three years and are excluded from the Georgia Department of Education’s 2015 Priority or Focus School list. North Whitfield Middle is one of 139 Greatest Gains schools in the state and one of only 23 schools to receive the 2017 Gold Award for Greatest Gains
Every year the Georgia Department of Education predicts each school's CCRPI Score based upon the school's size, grade cluster, student mobility, and student demographics (including race/ethnicity, disability, English learners, and poverty). If an individual school's actual CCRPI is above the predicted range, then that school beat the odds.
North Whitfield had an overall score of 81. This is compared to a state average of 75 for middle schools and a district average of 75. The total score consisted of 31.8 Achievement Points, 39.5 Progress Points, 6.7 Achievement Gap Points, and 3.0 Challenge Points.
Great Job PIONEER parents, students, teachers, and staff!
Let's keep up the good work and make 2018-19 another great year!

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.
