In a news release, the Georgia Department of Education last month announced the scores for the End of Course Tests administered to the state’s high and middle school students.

Local schools had mixed results on the tests, with Cobb and Fulton county schools each scoring above the state average on all but one of the 11 categories but Atlanta Public Schools scoring below the state average on all but one of the subjects.

Cobb schools scored below the state average only on geometry, and Fulton schools were below the Georgia average only on physics. Atlanta schools scored above the state average only on geometry, and the district did not have enough students taking the algebra test to register an average score.

In the school-by-school scores, Buckhead’s North Atlanta High fared better than its Atlanta district average. It scored above the state average on ninth-grade literature, American literature and composition, biology and coordinate algebra but was below the state average in the rest of the categories it turned in scores for. Grades for algebra and geometry either were not disclosed to the state or not enough students took those tests for the state to calculate an average score.

Buckhead’s Sutton Middle scored above the state average in coordinate algebra.

Cobb’s Campbell High in Smyrna, which serves Vinings students, scored above the Georgia average in only four of the 11 categories and did not disclose scores to the state or did not have enough students take tests in three subjects for the state to calculate an average score. Smyrna’s Campbell Middle scored above the state average in coordinate algebra.

Fulton’s North Springs and Riverwood high schools, both in Sandy Springs, fared slightly worse than its district average. North Springs scored above the statewide average in each subject except coordinate algebra and physics. Riverwood scored above the Georgia average in each subject except coordinate algebra, geometry physics.

Sandy Springs’ Ridgeview and Sandy Springs middle schools each scored above the state average in coordinate algebra.
