How close were they? I will try and check the AJC. And yes, having a smaller pool of students is a good thing, most of the time. Found the numbers. Close in many categories, good for all involved.

When you compare the numbers from Fayette to neighboring Counties, that is an eye opener.

You can use these stats as marketing tools now instead of telling homeowners their homes are hard to sell because they don't go to Booth! 6th and 7th Bennett's Mill scores spanked Booth too.

Looks to me like having 550 kids in a middle school is paying off! The schools with 1,200 kids did not do as well. Maybe real estate agents will quit bragging about Rising Starr Middle & it will be less crowded in the future. Even Whitewater Middle did better than RSMS, all the people who freaked out (during the redistricting) to think they might have to go to WWM should be checking this out!

The reason that the students at BMMS did so well has nothing to do with the number of students and everything to do with the neighborhoods that were shifted to the new schools. The fact is that Bennett's Mill had 40 percent of their students in the gifted program. The redistricting was a calculated move to prove that the school could be a success. This is why the BMMS scores are so high.

And the FCBOE will not let my child continue at Bennett's.

won't let your kid stay...it seems that they have a big problem with the budget next year. I find it interesting that there are not even enough kids at BMMS for the state to give full state funding...you think they would be looking for volunteers to attend to push them closer to that magic number...afterall, they are going to raise taxes and that does'nt even cover the shortfall in budget.. I'm sorry for you...and even sorrier for your kid. The FCBOE gets ....just another failing grade and and another disenchanted tax payer.

My daughter was on the Honor Roll, Peer Mediator, Student Council and the Volleyball team. Now she will start all over again at Whitewater Middle. Congratulations, Whitewater, you are getting a great student. She is very likable student. She ate lunch with the some special ed students last year because she was upset that some students made “fun” of them. She thought if she took the chance to befriend the new students that others would too. Shame on you FCBOE for letting this happen. Sorry for your loss BMMS, blame it on the FCBOE.
