We are always glad to praise our local schools when there is positive news to report.
The state of Georgia recently honored our three high schools - Rockdale County, Heritage and Salem - with distinctions for the schools' performance on AP tests.
All three received AP Honors for Access and Support. Rockdale and Heritage also received awards for AP STEM Achievement. Rockdale County Public Schools was also named an AP Honor District - an honor given to only 536 school districts throughout America and Canada.
RCPS Superintendent Richard Autry said that these awards are a true testament of our district-wide focus to increase rigor for all students.
We thank our teachers, tutors, staff, mentors and students for putting in the additional work, sweat and tears to achieve those standards.
