Hamilton County Schools Posts Highest Student Academic Growth Since 2013

OMS is a Level 5 School!!!! 

Student academic growth in Hamilton County Schools showed significant improvement according to the Tennessee Value-Added Assessment System (TVAAS) for 2018.  The overall composite score for student academic growth in Hamilton County Schools improved to Level 3 – meeting growth expectations – from Level 1 last year. The state department reports TVAAS results for districts and schools using a range from Level 1 to Level 5.  The 2018 results are the first time since 2013 that the district’s overall TVAAS composite across all subjects showed students meeting growth expectations.


Literacy performance remained robust in growth at Level 5, with the strongest results in elementary and middle school.  Social studies also showed significant growth in elementary and middle school moving from Level 1 to Level 4. Notably, the gains in social studies were attained with a new, more rigorous assessment that students took for the first time this year.  Numeracy continues to be a challenge for the district across all grade levels coming in at Level 1 on TVAAS for both 2017 and 2018.  High school results generally did not show students meeting growth expectations and verifies the move to make learning more relevant with the addition of Future Ready Institutes this year.


“The results from TVAAS this year are very encouraging and indicates our schools are trending in the right direction,” said Dr. Bryan Johnson, superintendent of Hamilton County Schools. “Children exceeding a year’s worth of academic growth in classrooms across the district is how Hamilton County Schools will become the fastest improving school district in the state of Tennessee.”
