Fayette County Students Score Almost Perfect on Writing Test

Fayette’s high school students nearly posted a 100 percent pass rate on the fall 2010 Georgia High School Writing Test.

The pass rate for first-time 11th grade regular program students was 99 percent with only one percent not meeting standards. The pass rate is up two percent from last year with the percentage not meeting standards dropping two percent. The percent of students exceeding standards was 18 percent, the same as last year.

State-level comparisons show that 97 percent of Georgia’s first time 11th grade regular students passed the test, nine percent exceeded.

All of the county’s high schools raised their pass rates from 2009, earning 99 percent across the board with the exception of Whitewater High, which had a 100 percent pass rate. In comparison to 2009, Fayette County High’s pass rate increased two percent, McIntosh increased three percent, Sandy Creek increased three percent, Starr’s Mill increased one percent, and Whitewater increased three percent.

All schools posted double digits in the “exceeds” category ranging from 14 to 24 percent. Both McIntosh and Sandy Creek saw large jumps in this category with McIntosh up five percent and Sandy Creek up a whopping 17 percent from 2009.
