To educate all students in meaningful contexts and encourage continued growth, education, and success after high school.
LHS Parents, Guardians, and Students; We thank our parents, students, and teachers for a successful and safe first semester of the 2017-2018 school year. As you read this letter, we are nearly a month into our second academic semester, and your students should be well settled into their new classes. As you may know, public schools in Georgia are graded on a scale called the College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI). The CCRPI scores for the 2016-2017 school year were released in December, and LHS finished 2017 with a total score of 83.3 and showed an increase in proficiency in five of the seven State End of Course (EOC) tested subjects. We also saw an increase in our LHS graduation rate to 87.2%. The credit for these improvements can be given to the hard work of our students, the dedication of our teachers and staff, and the support and strength of our LHS families. For more information on the CCRPI and our score, feel free to visit the Georgia Department of Education at www.gadoe.org. LHS congratulates our 2017 STAR Student Jeremy Mullis. The STAR student each year is the graduating senior who has achieved the highest score on the SAT in his/her graduating class. Jeremy’s composite SAT score is an incredible 1550, and he has selected his calculus teacher Don Wisdom as his STAR teacher. This is a great accomplishment for both Jeremy and Mr. Wisdom. Parents, I encourage you to stay up to date on your children’s grades and progress in their classes. I also encourage you to stay in contact with their teachers for updated class information and tips on how you can help them be successful in classes. Thank you for allowing us to work with your children. Mike Robison Principal, LHS

STUDENT OF THE SEMESTER Student of the Semester is a special opportunity to recognize those students who have excelled in the classroom. Two times during the school year, teachers are asked to identify one student from their classes who stands out above the others for any number of reasons. Some teachers will choose a student who has made great academic strides during the semester. Others may choose a student who has been particularly helpful, gregarious, intellectually engaging, or perhaps, the one who went out of his or her way to make every day a special day at Loganville High School. During the ceremony, a citation written by the teacher about each individual student is read before the assembled students, parents, and loved ones. In recognition of their efforts, students also receive a special certificate. The following students were recognized as Student of the Semester for first semester: Congratulations to these outstanding students!

Grades in college prep classes 2. Rigor in curriculum 3. Scores from standardized admissions tests (SAT, ACT) 4. Overall GPA 5. Strength of the application essay or writing sample 6. Studentâ€™s level of interest in attending 7. Counselor and teacher recommendations 8. Class rank Factors that were rated lowest by college admissions officials included SAT II scores (subject scores), state graduation exam scores, portfolios, and work experience.

A D VA N C E D P L A C E M E N T STUDENTS College Board mandates the AP Exam administration take place the first two weeks of May. See the schedule below for AP exam dates.

Students taking the exam will not be expected to attend classes at LHS that day. AP students are expected to take the exam for each course they take.
