Lee County Schools have continued their trend of positive evaluations in the annual North Carolina State of Education Assessments, in the 2016-17 school year. Every school in the district achieved a performance grade of C or better. 8 of 13 schools achieved “met growth” or “exceeded growth” status. Lee County’s graduation rate improved to 90.1% and remains well above the state average.
Lee County’s innovative Lee Early College earned an A for the second consecutive year and exceeded growth expectations. Greenwood Elementary was also recognized for exceeding growth expectations.
Lee County Schools Superintendent Dr. Andy Bryan was very pleased with the state assessments, noting “We made significant progress when performance scores were released last year and are glad to see that improvement continue. Obviously much of the credit goes to our students, teachers and administrators, but our entire community is part of this effort. Elected officials, business leaders, volunteers and people all across the county are getting more involved in the schools, too, which makes a real difference.”
