College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI)
Mabry is proud to announce that it has placed at the top of scores for Cobb County Middle Schools on CCRPI and a 5 Star rating for our climate and rated the highest for middle schools in Cobb County!
Please read below for more information:
March 16, 2015 – The Georgia Department of Education today released its first School Climate Star Ratings. The 2014 ratings are based on survey results and data from the 2013-2014 school year.
School climate refers to the quality and character of school life – the “culture” of a school. A sustainable, positive school climate fosters youth development and student learning, which are essential elements for academic success, career-skill improvement and overall quality of life. The School Climate Star Rating helps determine whether a school is on the right path to school improvement.
“Research has shown us that school climate has a strong impact on student achievement,” State School Superintendent Richard Woods said. “The data used to develop the 2014 Star Ratings proves this once again. If your school has a positive climate, it’s giving students the environment they need to learn. You’ll likely see high achievement there – or a school that’s on the right track toward high achievement.”
Each school in Georgia received a 1-5 star ratings, with five stars representing an excellent school climate, and one star representing a school climate most in need of improvement. School Climate Star Ratings are an informational tool for schools, administrators, and parents; they do not affect the school’s College & Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI) score.
Interpretations of the star ratings are below; this information can also be found in the School Climate Law.
'5-star' schools ranked excellent according to the school climate index;
'4-star' schools ranked above average according to the school climate index;
'3-star' schools ranked average according to the school climate index;
'2-star' schools ranked below satisfactory according to the school climate index, or
'1-star' schools ranked unsatisfactory according to the school climate index.
School Climate Star Ratings are required by law; they also serve as a companion to the Department of Early Care and Learning’s Quality Rated program, which includes an assessment of the learning environment.

Parking Lot Safety
Safety of our students is a high priority. There have been some concerns about dismissal, traffic flow and students in the upper parking lot.
Safety of our students is a high priority at Mabry Middle School. There have been some concerns about dismissal, traffic flow and students in the upper parking lot.
To insure student safety, please follow the procedures outlined below:
• Parents may park in the upper parking lot until 4:00. After this time, the upper parking lot will become a one-way, direction out only egress to ensure greater safety of students walking in the parking lot in route to their parents’ car. No other cars will be allowed in at that time.
• After 4:00, parents must proceed to the pick-up line that goes down the turn-around to pick up their students in front of the building. This increases the number of cars that can queue in the drive of the school, alleviating traffic on Jims Road.
*Please do not double park in any parking area.
• Please proceed to the stop sign to pick up your student and do not load before the cross walk in front of the school. This will eliminate cars passing in the pick-up line.
• Students may only load in front of the school in the designated pick-up line.
We appreciate your cooperation and understanding.
Bus Rules and Bus Pass:
Due to space constraints, students will not be allowed to ride a different school bus without administrative approval. Students that require a bus pass due to child care needs will fill out the bus pass form and turn it into the front office for approval. No student will be allowed to ride an alternative bus without this form. Thank you for your assistance.

Be There Campaign:
Cobb County has teamed up with thirteen other metropolitan school districts to promote the Be There campaign sponsored by WSB-TV.
The purpose of this campaign is to promote parent involvement in school. Studies have shown that when you connect with your child everyday, your child benefits for life. When he or she knows you care and are concerned about education, the following occurs:
- Achievement in school improves; students earn higher grades and test scores and enroll in higher-level programs
- Children want to go to school
- Courses are passes, credits earned and students are promoted to the next grade
- Self-confidence improves
To learn more about the Be There campaign, please visit their site:
