Otwell MS Named Top-Performing Title I School in State

State School Superintendent Richard Woods released the 2018 list of Title I Distinguished Schools, the highest-performing Title I schools in the state, which included Otwell Middle School.

“In addition to identifying schools in need of additional support, it’s important for us to recognize and applaud schools when they’re doing well,” State School Superintendent Richard Woods said. “These public schools are among the very best in the state and are doing extraordinary work on behalf of their students and communities. I extend my thanks and congratulations to every teacher, administrator, staff member, student, parent, and community partner who contributed to their success.”

Distinguished Schools are among the top 5% of all Title I schools in Georgia when ranked according to their most recent CCRPI score. Schools identified for CSI or TSI support are not eligible. Review the criteria here.

"We congratulate the staff at Otwell MS for their commitment in meeting the needs of all students and their continued improvement, achieved with a strong school-home-community partnership," shared FCS Superintendent Jeff Bearden. 

As one of 84 schools in the state to be a 2018 Title I Distinguished School, Otwell MS is also a National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence and a Georgia School of Excellence.
