Academic excellence and academic success of our students are top priorities in Floyd County Schools. Positive results of this commitment to academic performance are evident in the test scores of our students on the standardized tests required by the state and federal governments. Floyd County students consistently score higher on standardized test than the state average.
Floyd County Schools record of success in state and national testing was recognized by Standard and Poor’s last year. The school system was named a 2006 Standard and Poor’s “Outperformer” in Georgia. Only 20 Georgia school districts made the company's list of academic "outperformers." The "outperformers" recognition requires a school system to achieve higher percentages of students scoring at or above state standards on reading and math tests, achieve proficiency levels that are above the threshold for the expected performance of its student population, and achieve at this level on a consistent basis. Floyd County students consistently exhibit academic excellence and experience academic success.
