Nine of Fayette County’s schools are among the 159 Georgia public schools in 42 districts that received highest performance and/or greatest gains school awards from the Governor’s Office of Student Achievement based on scores from the College and Career Performance Index (CCRPI).

These two schools are among just 31 in 12 districts that received awards in both categories,” Berry-Dreisbach said.
