North Fulton Middle Schools Outperform Most State, National Peers
Fulton Science Academy leads North Fulton middle schools
North Fulton middle schools score higher than the national average on the Iowa Tests of Basic Skills (ITBS), and most did better than the state scoring averages.
The scores are reported in percentiles and show how students compared with other students across the nation.
ITBS percentile rankings are available for all Fulton County Schools online and as a pdf file posted with this story. The test was taken by third, fifth and eighth grade students.
Fulton Science Academy Middle School ranked the highest for eighth graders. River Trail Middle School had the second highest showing in North Fulton. Amana Academy, another charter school in Alpharetta, had the biggest one year gains, jumping by at least 7 percent and as much as 24 percent in the scores for Reading, Math, Language Social Studies and Science.
(Check Alpharetta-Milton Patch soon for a preview of the continuating of a zoning hearing for Amana Academy on Monday, Dec. 19, which wants to relocate to Windward.)
