ROGERSVILLE — For the seventh year in a row Rogersville City School earned straight A’s in the academic achievement category of the state report card.
And when you’re achieving at such a high level, it’s hard to continually show improvement, which is measured on the state report card in the “value added” category.
But, that’s just what the RCS did this year, earning straight A’s in valued added as well. Last year RCS’ value added scores included three A’s and a B in science.
Principal Rhonda Winstead said RCS administrators and faculty are pleased with their academic achievement and value added growth scores from the 2013 school year.
“Academic achievement scores allow RCS students to show what they know,” Winstead said. “Studies have shown that higher achievement scores can enable students to reach their dreams of post-secondary work and college.”
An astounding 97.6 percent of RCS students in grades 3-8 scored proficient or advanced in social studies. As for other subjects, 59.6 percent were proficient or advanced in math; 68.1 percent in reading/language arts (RLA); and 76.4 percent in science.
