ACMS MEET IN THE MIDDLE
ATTENTION ALL RISING 7TH GRADERSOn Friday May 8th, 2015 sixth grade students from all three elementary schools will visit Ashe County Middle School to tour and meet the friends they will be joining as 7th graders next year. It will be an opportunity to tour the school, enjoy some fun activities and have a snack. We look forward to meeting our future students. Parents, if you would like to help during this event by providing cookies/brownies or serving as a group volunteer, please see your child’s 6th grade teacher for a parent volunteer letter. We look forward to seeing all of you!
Upcoming 9th graders who have signed up for English 1 Honors at ACHS for the 2015-2016 school year must complete a summer reading assignment. Please visit the summer reading website for more information on book titles, requirements, teacher contact info, etc.

School Performance Grades
Legislation passed by state law makers in 2013 calls for the 2013-2014 School Report Cards released State Board of Education to include a School Performance Grade represented by an A-F letter grade based on school achievement and growth. Growth accounts for 20 % of the grade, performance accounts for 80% of the grade, and the letter grades are given on a 15 point grading scale. Our middle school grade was based on the EOG scores in Math, Reading and 8th Grade Science.
Our school exceeded the state academic growth targets for 2013-2014 and received a School Performance Grade of B.
