State school Superintendent John Barge will visit A.R. Johnson Magnet School next week to recognize the school as a 2012 Georgia School of Excellence in Student Achievement.
A.R. Johnson was one of 28 schools named a school of excellence on Aug. 13. The award is given to schools that show the highest performance or highest progress in the state based on College and Career Ready Performance Index scores.
Barge’s visit is at 8:30 a.m. Aug. 29.
“We are proud of the students and staff at AR. Johnson for earning this distinction,” said Richmond County Superintendent Frank Roberson in a prepared statement. “In addition to the honor and recognition that it brings to the school and system, it reinforces our commitment to providing a challenging and relevant curriculum that prepares students for inspiring postsecondary experiences.”
A.R. Johnson will receive a $1,000 check from Georgia Natural Gas to support instruction and learning.
