We encourage you to read about the Common Core Standards that the state of Georgia, along with 47 other states, has adopted. The Common Core standards will provide a unified set of standards that will be used from state to state, which will prepare students for success in college and/or the 21st century workplace. You can also read the letter from our district office for more details.

All students will take the End-of-Course Test (EOCT) after completing courses in Math I, Math II, Algebra, Geometry, US History, Economics, Biology, Physical Science, 9th Grade Literature and Composition, and American Literature and Composition. Results of the EOCT are used for diagnostic, remedial and accountability purposes to gauge the quality of education in the state and also count as part of the student's final grade in the course. For students enrolled in 9th grade for the first time before July 1, 2011, the EOCT counts as 15% of the final grade. For students enrolled in 9th grade for the first time on July 1, 2011, or after, the EOCT counts as 20% of the final grade.
Please visit the Georgia Department of Education website for the study guides in each discipline of the EOCT series of tests. The EOCT study guides are also located on the sidebar of this page, under the heading Plan for Graduation and College.
Students in the eleventh grade will participate in the Georgia High School Writing Test (GHSWT) and must pass the GHSWT to earn a regular education diploma. Students are asked to produce a response to one on-demand persuasive writing prompt. The writing test requires students to produce a composition of no more than two pages on an assigned topic. The two-hour test administration includes 100 minutes of student writing time. Please visit the Georgia Department of Education website for additional information and resources.
