On October 25 at 10:00 a.m., the Georgia Department of Education released the 2019 College and Career Readiness Performance Index (CCRPI) scores. Congratulations to Harrison High School for a 96.3% CCRPI score! We are up 2.3 points from last year and tied for the highest score for all high schools in the Cobb County School District. Harrison is also tied for 5th place among all schools in the district. Also, Harrison is tied for 4th place out of 677 high schools in the state of Georgia. For another year in a row, our students have scored 100 out of 100 maximum points for content mastery with the Georgia Milestones Assessment System for English, math, science, and social studies. This score also includes improving performance among all students, including our subgroups. 

Thank you to our faculty and staff for maintaining a strong academic culture and to our students for keeping their learning at the forefront while also balancing other parts of their high school experience. Thank you as well to our parents and to our feeder schools for helping prepare our students for academic success and supporting a community of learning for all students. Our 96.3% score represents a team effort and more importantly… another reminder of the supportive community in which we live. Congratulations again, Hoya Nation! We are proud of our Hoyas!
