HMS Test Scores--Highest Gains in GCSD
So proud to share state data and rankings with our students, parents and community!
The SCREADY and PASS scores were released to the public this week. Hillcrest Middle had the highest gains in Greenville County middle schools. We increased our ELA score 7 percentage points, and our mathematics 8 percentage points. We moved up in the district middle school rankings to fifth and earned a four star rating. ONLY Riverside, League, Blue Ridge and Beck rank higher than HMS. We moved up 32 places in the state rankings from 94th to 62nd out of a total of 303 middle schools in South Carolina which now positions us in the top 20% of all middle schools in the state! We are heading in the right direction and are poised to move higher. Our goal is to be in the top three middle schools in our county and the top 10% of our state.
