JHS has outscored the national public school average by 74 points and the state public school average by 50 points. According to the Georgia Department of Education, this is the fifth year in a row that Georgia public schools have outperformed the national SAT score average.
“Georgia public schools continue to exceed the national average on the SAT – that’s a testament to the hard work of students and teachers,” State School Superintendent Richard Woods said. “I am extremely proud of the class of 2022 and their educators, families, and communities who have invested in them. While students and schools have faced significant challenges over the last several years, as a state we will continue to invest in academic recovery and the opportunities available to every graduate of every Georgia public school.”
“We are proud of our students and teachers for moving up to 9th in the state this year as a system,” said JHS Principal Rob McFerrin. “ We plan to continue to work hard in the classroom and improve in our studies and on the SAT.”
