For the second consecutive year,
Eastvalley is being recognized and awarded by the Governor’s
Office of Student Achievement in the Greatest Gains category for
exhibiting high growth in student achievement under Georgia's
statewide accountability system. This means that our
academic growth over the last three years has been in the top 7%
of schools in the state. More importantly, this represents
the passion and professionalism of our staff, the support and
investment from our families, and the hard word and strong
character of our students that I have the privilege of
witnessing every single day! Congratulations to you all
for making Eastvalley the best place to teach, lead, and learn!
