Armuchee Middle School Named a 2021 Ascend Math Gold Medal Recipient 

Ascend Education announced today that Armuchee Middle School in Armuchee, GA will receive a 2021 Gold Medal. 

The Gold Medal Award was established in 2010 to honor the schools or districts that best demonstrate a dedication to ensuring that all students become successful at math. The strategies employed by this year’s Gold Medal honorees made use of Ascend Math, an online individualized math instructional resource, to accelerate math learning and outpace growth targets. 

In his submission for Armuchee Middle School Austin Goggans wrote, “I can have students working on several skills independently and still work one on one with students who need additional help.” 

“Congratulations to Armuchee Middle School students for the perseverance and hard work that led to their exceptional results,” said Kevin Briley, CEO of Ascend Education. ”We are extremely proud of the important job the educators at Armuchee Middle School are doing to help their students succeed in math, gain confidence and positively advance in life.” “This year we have heard countless ways in which schools have accelerated math learning using Ascend Math. These educators reported grade-level growth, improved test scores, and many other positive touchpoints and outcomes. We are so thankful for our Gold Medal schools, what they are doing to support their students despite the challenges of COVID and the ways they have shared their models to help other educators implement best practices.” 

Armuchee Middle School will be featured on the Ascend Math website throughout the next year and receive a plaque commemorating their success. The complete honor roll can be viewed at
