From Doug Brown, Madison County Superintendent of Schools:
The preliminary 2012 school grades have been released and Madison County High School has earned a preliminary ‘A’ grade!!! The school grades are listed on the DOE website. I must stress that the high school grades are preliminary, but the grades are now displayed on the website for public consumption.
This school grade is testimony to (1) the establishment of high expectations (2) ‘buy in’ to those expectations by students, teachers, parents, and administrators, (3) hard work, dedication, and commitment by all involved and (4) leadership at the school level by the principal, AP’s, and curriculum coaches.
My hat is off to principal Ben Killingsworth, former superintendent Lou Miller, and the entire MCHS faculty and staff for this AMAZING ACCOMPLISHMENT!!! This is the first time that the high school has earned an A grade, but it will not be the last. The bar is set! BTW, MCHS is the only ‘A’ high school in the six-county region (Hamilton, Jefferson, Lafayette, Madison, Suwannee, and Taylor). Let’s celebrate!!!
