2012 Title 1 Reward School
Congratulations, Bethune Middle School!
Oct. 31, 2012 – The Georgia Department of Education [ http://www.doe.k12.ga.us ] (GADOE) today released the list of Reward Schools as part of the state’s waiver from the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA).
The category is reserved for schools with the highest performance or the biggest academic gains by students in the last three years.
A “High-Progress School” is a Title I school among the 10% of Title I schools in the State that is making the most progress in improving the performance of the “all students” group over three years on the statewide assessments. A school may not be classified as a High-Progress School if there are significant achievement gaps across subgroups that are not closing in the school.

Bethune Lion Creed
I am a Bethune Lion, courageous and smart
Educating my mind
Caring from my heart
Positive role models are all around
The seed of education is planted on fertile ground
The path I follow leads to success
As a Bethune Lion, I strive to do my best
I am a future leader that cannot be moved
I have a love for family my country and school
