Independence is Beating the Odds!
Independence High School is "Beating the Odds." On December 21, 2017, GOSA, Georgia Office of Student Achievement, released the 2017 Beating the Odds results. Beating the Odds is a statistical analysis that compares a school's actual performance on the College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI) with the performance of schools with similar characteristics across the state. Schools that perform higher than similar schools are considered "Beating the Odds." This is a great designation. It shows the wonderful things that are happening at IHS! Click here to learn more.
Congratulations, Class of 2017!
