Orange Beach Middle School Named A+ College Ready School
ORANGE BEACH, Alabama (WKRG) – The A+ College Ready “School of Excellence” award is given to schools that experience record academic growth during the school year. The award is only given to seven schools in Alabama and Orange Beach Middle School was one of them.
“Orange Beach Middle School had the greatest improvement in the PSAT from grades 7 through 8 of any of the seven schools receiving this recognition,” said Orange Beach Superintendent Randy Wilkes.
Orange Beach Middle School showed significant improvement in math and reading scores to win the award.
“And I’m thrilled that this group of 8th graders who are now going into 9th grade very soon will one day pass the ACT and we’re just hoping for great results from this class,” Wilkes said.
This award shows the hard work the staff and students of Orange Beach Middle School have put in over the course of the school year. Wilkes said he expects the same results for this new school year.
