Three Houston Co. schools named state high-performing reward schools

HOUSTON COUNTY, GA – Kings Chapel Elementary, Linwood Elementary and Shirley Hills Elementary have been named Reward Schools by the Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE).  This award is reserved for Title 1 schools with the highest performance or the biggest academic gains by students in the last three years.  Houston’s three schools are among 78 schools statewide honored in the Highest Performance category.  Ranked in the top five percent of Title I schools, the schools were chosen for this honor because they have the highest performance for the “all students” group over three years.

“These faculties and staffs work very hard to provide the best for their students,” commented Superintendent Dr. Robin Hines.  “This state recognition represents years of excellence.  I am so proud of these administrators, teachers, students and their families!”
