Congratulations, Hoya Nation, on This Year’s CCRPI Score

Congratulations again to Harrison High School for a 94% on the College and Career Readiness Performance Index (CCRPI). This score puts Harrison High School in third place among all of the high schools in the Cobb County School District. Harrison is one of seven Cobb County Schools scoring 100 out of 100 point maximum for content mastery. This information means that our students have had excellent success with the Georgia Milestones Assessment System for English language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies. Among all of the high schools in Cobb, Harrison had the highest progress component, which means that our students have demonstrated significant growth in comparison to academically similar students. Harrison is 15 among 450 public high schools in the state of Georgia and ninth out of non-magnet schools. Thank you to our faculty and staff for maintaining a strong academic culture and to our students for their continued hard work! Thank you as well to our parents and to our feeder schools for helping prepare our students for academic success! Just a reminder, the Georgia Department of Education recently redesigned the CCRPI formula so this year’s CCRPI score cannot be compared to last year’s CCRPI score. We invite you to read more about this in the CCRPI article on the CobbCast website.

SPLOST IV Project

For details about Harrison’s Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST) project, please visit the Cobb County School District website. A SPLOST is an optional one percent county sales tax that is approved by voters in Cobb County. The Cobb County School District SPLOST department is responsible for all aspects of planning, implementation, and completion of all SPLOST projects and activities. Harrison’s SPLOST project includes a new gym and performing arts center. Construction began at the end of May 2018 with a scheduled completion date of June 2019. Harrison’s SPLOST project will also include the replacement of exterior doors, hardware, and in some instances the surrounding windows/frames attached to the doors. Other details for Harrison’s SPLOST project are located on our SPLOST IV page. We will update the Harrison community on this project with occasional messages in the weekly e-blast to parents. Thank you for your patience during the Cobb County School District’s SPLOST construction. We are looking forward to the improvements to our campus for our students, staff, and community at large.
