Twenty-three Gwinnett County schools are among the best in Georgia, according to the Governor’s Office on Student Achievement.
The schools received the “Highest Achieving” distinction for earning a three-year average College Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI) in the 93rd percentile or higher. That index evaluates how a school prepares students for their next steps in life, whether it be higher education or a job.
Schools can earn a bronze award for being in the 93rd percentile, silver for being in the 95th percentile, gold for being in the 97th percentile and platinum for being in the 99th percentile.
Some Gwinnett schools were also recognized as the state’s most improved.
