Marietta schools rewarded for improving student performance 

Two Marietta City Schools have been commended for improving student achievement on the College and Career Readiness Performance Index.

Hickory Hills and Sawyer Road elementary schools were named Title I Reward Schools by the Georgia Department of Education.

Schools earn the designation based upon improvements to their CCRPI scores from the previous year. Title I Reward Schools are among the top 10 percent of Title I schools that are making the most progress in improving the scores of all students.

The Marietta City School System said the latest CCRPI data show Hickory Hills improved its score by 15.4 points while Sawyer Road’s score jumped by 20.5 points. 

“We know that student progress and achievement is a direct reflection of the hard work and dedication of the principals, teachers, and staff at both Hickory Hills and Sawyer Road,” said Superintendent Dr. Grant Rivera. “I am proud of what these schools have accomplished and congratulate them for being recognized by the state.”
