Print This Post


U.S. News & World Report has ranked Crisp County High School as one of the nation’s best public high schools.

“This is such an honor for our High School and gives an opportunity to focus on what’s right with our schools rather than what’s wrong,” said Kathy Garwood, Georgia Family Connection coordinator, Crisp County Community Council. “It’s great to be a part of a community that supports the academic success of it’s students.”

The report placed schools in four categories, based on their achievements: gold, silver, bronze and honorable mention. Crisp County High was among 1,189 schools nationally to get a bronze ranking, while 461 schools nationally ranked silver, and 100 schools attained gold.

According to Macon.com Crisp County was one of 29 high schools in Georgia ranked—and the only one in Middle Georgia. Among the rating criteria, its students had higher-than-average test scores in reading and math on state exams.

“This award is a tribute to what our teachers and our students do here at Crisp County High School every day,” said Crisp County High School Principal Toriano Gilbert on WALB News 10. “We’re very humbled to receive this award.”
