Placeholder Image

Three Gainesville schools and two Hall County schools made a list for those with the highest progress in the state.

Fair Street International Baccalaureate World School, Gainesville Exploration Academy and New Holland Core Knowledge Academy in the Gainesville system and Sugar Hill Elementary and West Hall Middle School in the Hall system are in the top 10 percent of Title I schools with all students improving performance according to statewide assessments in the past three years. The number of schools to make that list in the state is 165.

Title I schools are those with high percentages of students from low-income families.

No Gainesville or Hall schools made the list of highest-performing schools in the state, which included the top 5 percent of Title I schools based on the same test data. The number of schools statewide to make that list was 80.
