Harrison County Schools Honored for Academic Excellence

Fourteen schools in the Harrison County School District were honored Monday night for their amazing academic achievements! The Harrison County School Board and Superintendent Roy Gill recognized 14 out of 19 schools in the district that were either “A” or “B” rated schools, which is the most the district has ever seen!  

The performance level grades were released by the Mississippi Department of Education last month, based on accountability results from the 2016-17 state assessments.
Each of the 14 schools received a banner to proudly display on their campus.

 “We are very proud of these schools!” said HCSD Curriculum Co-Director Sherry Washburn, as she announced the names of the schools.

Here are the four “A” rated schools:

* Three Rivers Elementary School 
* North Woolmarket Elementary & Middle School 
* West Wortham Elementary & Middle School 
* West Harrison High School

Here are the ten “B” rated schools:

* D’Iberville Elementary School 
* D’Iberville Middle School 
* D’Iberville High School 
* Harrison Central High School 
* Lizana Elementary School 
* Lyman Elementary School 
* Pineville Elementary School 
* River Oaks Elementary School 
* Saucier Elementary School 
* Woolmarket Elementary School

Superintendent Gill noted that North Woolmarket ranked fourth in the state at the elementary level in academic achievement.  Also, Three Rivers Elementary had the highest gains in points in the district. This is the first time that Three Rivers and West Wortham achieved an “A” rating. 

“Thank you so much for your hard work.  Keep it up!” said Harrison County School Board President Dr. Barbara Thomas.
