VHS Leads Area on State Writing Test
Monday, 10 December 2012

December 10--  Vidalia High School is in the top ten percent statewide and leads the area on the Georgia High School Graduation Writing Test.

Eleventh graders from 467 high schools around the state were tested this Fall and the Juniors at Vidalia High School had an overall pass rate of 98.9 percent.  The state average is 95 percent.  Only 34 high schools in the state had higher pass rates than Vidalia High School.

“We are extremely excited about these results,” reports Principal Dr. Garrett Wilcox.  “I think this says a lot about the job our English teachers are doing to prepare our students and a lot about the effort students are putting forth. This accomplishment is something the entire system should take pride in. I really believe the foundation that the students have received at the lower grades has a tremendous impact on a students’ ability to be successful as they move through high school so everyone in the system has played a role in some part in this accomplishment.”
