Clarke County


The Clarke County School District in Georgia encompasses 21 schools, including 14 elementary schools, 4 middle schools, and 3 high schools, serving a diverse student population. The data reveals significant disparities in academic performance across the district, with some standout schools like Timothy Elementary, Chase Street Elementary, and Barrow Elementary leading the way in English Language Arts and Mathematics proficiency, while other schools struggle with lower performance.

The data suggests a strong correlation between socioeconomic status and academic achievement, with the highest-poverty schools, such as Gaines Elementary, Fowler Drive Elementary, and Howard B. Stroud Elementary, consistently ranking among the lowest-performing in the district and state. These schools face unique challenges in supporting student learning and achievement, underscoring the need for targeted interventions and resources to address the disparities.

The district's high schools also show a range of performance, with Clarke Central High and Cedar Shoals High achieving graduation rates of 80.2% and 73.6%, respectively, while Classic City High lags behind at 68.4%. The variation in student-teacher ratios across the district, from 6.3 at Classic City High to 15 at Clarke Central High, may also be a contributing factor to the academic performance differences.
