Cobb Students Continue to Excel on Georgia Milestones, Best State Scores

Daniell Students Among the Best!!!

From the Cobb County School District, see full story here.

Students in the Cobb County School District increased their scores on the Georgia Milestones in the 2018-2019 school year, outpacing their peers across the state by 7.4 to 9.4 percentage points in all subject areas. 

“The Georgia Milestones scores confirm what the Cobb community already knows: Cobb is the best place to teach, lead, and learn. Cobb students continue to excel and outperform their peers because of the commitment of our teachers, staff, parents, and community members to deliver the highest level of success for each and every student,” praised Cobb Superintendent Chris Ragsdale.   

Cobb high school students exceeded Georgia by an astonishing 10.7 percentage points on the Milestones end-of-course tests. Continuing Cobb’s success on Georgia Milestones, Cobb elementary and middle school students outperformed their state peers by 7.1 percentage points on the Milestones end-of-grade tests. . 

Cobb students, who increased scores in all four subject areas, also bested their Georgia peers by 7.4 percentage points in English Language Arts, 7.9 points in math, 9.2 points in science, and 9.4 points in social studies.  

More than 82,600 Cobb students took 195,655 Milestone tests. On 84% of those tests, students scored Developing Learner (level 2) or higher. That is compared to the statewide test scores where only 76% were level 2 or higher.  

All public school students in Georgia take End of Grade tests in English Language Arts and math in grades 3 through 8. Students in grades 5 and 8 also take EOG tests in science and social studies. High school students take End of Course tests in eight courses in the areas of English Language arts, math, science, and social studies.

As a testament to the increased success in Cobb Schools, almost 90% of Cobb Schools improved their Georgia Milestones scores compared to three years ago. Milford Elementary School returned the best 1- and 3-year trends for the percentage of students who scored levels 2-4. Milford’s percentage jumped by a whopping 10.1 points over last year and 18 points over 3 years.  

“For the past three years at Milford, we have focused on teaching and learning while promoting a growth mindset. Our teachers are empowering students to believe that they can achieve at high levels, and our students are rising to the occasion,” explained Milford principal, Dr. Hermia Simmons-Deveaux.   

At 7.3 percentage points, Daniell Middle School returned the greatest middle school improvement. 

“Our success during the 2018-2019 school year is attributed to a single factor and that is our teachers. Their commitment to the Cobb Collaborative Communities and unyielding focus on instruction, coupled with district support has enabled our students to demonstrate significant growth on the Georgia Milestones. The tenacity of Daniell teachers and students have laid the foundation for future academic success,” said James Rawls, Daniell principal.  

Topping the list of the best 3-year trends, six Cobb schools saw the percentage of students who scored levels 2-4 increase by more than 10 points.  

 



Daniell Middle School has been named a 2019 BEST SCHOOLS by NICHE. Daniell Middle School ranks #63 (top 12%) in Best Public Middle Schools in Georgia, #56 (top 11%) in Best Public Middle School Teachers in Georgia, and #9 (top 2%) in Most Diverse Public Middle School in Georgia.

Additionally, during the fall semester, each magnet school will host an Open House to provide interested students and parents with specific information regarding their program. You can go online to the CCSD Magnet Programs website for more information or download the Magnet Program Flyer.


Daniell Middle School Receives Five Star Rating from the State Two Years Running

We are excited to announce that Daniell Middle School has once again earned a Five Star School Rating from the Georgia Department of Education which is the highest rating a school can receive from the state. This is the second consecutive year for Daniell to earn a five star rating! Without the combined hard work of our parents, students, and staff this would not have been and continue to be possible. Thank you for helping make this happen! Read below for more information about the School Climate Star Rating.

The School Climate Star Rating provides school-level data on the following components:

  1. Survey – a measure of student, teacher, and parent perceptions of a school’s climate;
  2. Student Discipline – a measure of student discipline using a weighted suspension rate;
  3. Safe and Substance-Free Learning Environment – school discipline incidents and student survey responses on use of illegal substances and the prevalence of violence, bullying, and unsafe incidents within a school; and
  4. Attendance – the average daily attendance of teachers, administrators, and staff members and the percentage of students with less than six unexcused absences.

Each of the components are given equal value.

What does the rating mean?

Each school receives a 1-5 star rating, with five stars representing an excellent school climate, and one star representing a school climate most in need of improvement.
