    Students who earn at least a 21 composite on the ACT are eligible for the Tennessee HOPE Scholarship. 75.0% of the WCS Class of 2023 met that minimum score requirement. 35.4% percent of students statewide met the same minimum.

    49.4% of the WCS Class of 2023 scored at or above all four college readiness benchmarks set by the ACT.

    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. WCS was designated an Advancing District and 31 schools were designated Reward Schools for 2023.
