With the exceptions of Math 1 and Economics, Banks County High School students finished in the top tier of Georgia schools in last spring’s End of Course Test results.
In fact, BCHS was in the top 100 high schools in the state in four out of seven categories where students were tested.
BCHS students struggled most with Math 1 where they had a 44.6 percent failure rate last spring. That was better than last fall’s results, but worse than the spring of 2010 testing and put the school in the middle one-third of all state high schools.
In Economics, Banks students were also in the middle tier of state schools with a failure rate of 27.7 percent.
While the schools’ failure rate of 34.5 percent in Math 2 was high, that was actually among the top one-third of state schools as many other schools did much worse in the Math 2 testing.
BCHS had exceptionally strong results in 9th Grade Literature, American Literature, Biology, and U.S. History where it was among the top 100 schools in Georgia with low failure rates.
