Brookwood School recently received a prestigious award from the governor's office of student achievement as part of their Single Statewide Accountability System (SSAS) awards.

Brookwood received the Platinum award because their students demonstrated high growth for the last three consecutive years on the College and Career Readiness Performance Index (CCRPI) score. To qualify, Brookwood earned a three-year average CCRPI score in at least the 93rd percentile or higher. Brookwood student growth was at the 99th percentile, placing them in the Platinum tier which is the highest tier.

The awards are only given to schools that have established high academic performance and growth. A total of 189 schools in the state of Georgia received distinguished awards, and Brookwood was one of only 12 elementary schools in Georgia to receive a Platinum award in the Greatest Gains category.

Brookwood received a certificate and banner to display in their school to exhibit their well-deserved accomplishment.

Superintendent Tim Scott expressed gratitude for the staff and students at Brookwood who achieved an award of such high caliber.

"I'm very proud of our faculty, staff and students," Scott said. "It is thanks to the hard work of our families and teachers who lead with guidance and support that this high honor was achieved."

Meleia Bridenstine, principal of Brookwood School, said, "Brookwood has a long history of designing quality learning experiences for our students through Place-Based STEM programming. This recent accolade is well-deserved and very much appreciated."
