Families of students who earned perfect scores on their 2022 state tests will be surprised when they return home today. One hundred and thirty two (132) perfect scores were earned on the 2022 state assessments by Vicksburg Warren School District students last spring and the District is marking the accomplishment by placing Aced It! signs in students’ yards today, Sep. 2. This is an increase of 53 perfect scores compared to last year when there were 79 perfect scores.

“Our students are working incredibly hard and we are excited to celebrate their accomplishments this way,” said Superintendent Chad Shealy. “I am proud of the work that each student, teacher and family did to bounce back last year. We are performing at or above pre-pandemic levels and this accomplishment took tremendous effort, focus, and resilience.”

The Mississippi Academic Assessment Program (MAAP) is designed to measure student achievement in English Language Arts (ELA), Mathematics, Science, and US History.  Students are assessed in grades 3 through 8 in English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics, grades 5 and 8 Science, Algebra I, Biology I, English II, and US History.  

Twenty (20) of the signs will end up in the yards of Academy of Innovation teacher Mrs. Brittany Prowell’s 7th-grade math students.  Mrs. Prowell credits this success to her students’ hard work and to teacher collaboration.

“I love AOI and our flexible classrooms where we are able to teach small groups or large groups. It gives me the opportunity to co-teach with other great teachers and help each student in the areas they need it most.” She uses the I do, we do, you do approach and is also a big believer in empowering students to help each other. “Our AOI students are absolutely amazing, they come, they want to learn, and they are excited about learning.” She added, “Kids rock it out!  They do what they need to do.”
