Daniell Top Middle School for CCRPI Growth - 20.3% Increase

Daniell Middle School is ECSTATIC to report that as of today, October 25th, Daniell’s new CCRPI score is 86.3. This represents a growth of 20.3 points in only one year. This is the highest growth of any middle school in Cobb County and the 4th highest growth of 112 Cobb County Schools. This is an amazing accomplishment for our students, teachers, and staff as it typically takes a school 3 to 5 years to show the type of growth we accomplished in one year

WHAT IS CCRPI? The College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI) is a comprehensive school improvement and accountability system used by the Georgia Department of Education to assess all Georgia Public Schools. This tool measures how well schools are helping students to reach their academic goals. In 2018 Daniell Middle School received a CCRPI score of 66. 

Not only are we ECSTATIC to announce the CCRPI scores, but once again we are thrilled to report that Daniell Middle School received a 5 Star Climate Rating from the Georgia Department of Education. This is the highest rating a school can receive and means that Daniell Middle School is among the most positive and safest schools in the State of Georgia. This is our 4th consecutive year with this designation.

WHAT IS SCHOOL CLIMATE? The National School Climate Center defines school climate as “the quality and character of school life” that is based on the “patterns of students’, parents’, and school personnel’s experiences of school life.” Research has found that schools with positive school climates tend to have better test scores and graduation rates; in contrast, schools with negative school climates as a result of unsafe or hostile environments tend to have lower academic performance”.[GADOE] 

Daniell Recognized for Gains in Achievement

JJ Daniell Middle School is very pleased with the outstanding academic gains shown on the Georgia Milestones Test. This is a testament to our dedicated staff and our hard working student body. Students outperformed other schools and made exceptional gains in almost all tested areas. Please click the link below for more information:

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.
