Fifty-two percent of the WCS Class of 2021 scored at or above all four college readiness benchmarks set by the ACT. By comparison, 18 percent of students in Tennessee achieved that feat.
Students who earn at least a 21 composite on the ACT are eligible for the Tennessee HOPE Scholarship. Seventy-seven percent of the WCS Class of 2021 met that minimum score requirement. The state average is 36 percent.

Tennessee’s accountability system is based on parameters from the federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). The system measures districts and schools against multiple indicators: achievement, growth, chronic absenteeism, English learner performance, graduation rates, and ready graduates. Twenty-four schools were designated Reward Schools for 2021.
Tennessee Value-Added Assessment System
The Tennessee Value-Added Assessment System (TVAAS) uses models to measure student growth by comparing a student’s performance with those of similar students on the same assessment.
The public TVAAS website provides access to school and district growth data and allows visitors for compare data.
