Students who earn at least a 21 composite on the ACT are eligible for the Tennessee HOPE Scholarship. Seventy-five percent of the WCS Class of 2022 met that minimum score requirement. Thirty-five percent of students statewide met the same minimum.
Forty-nine percent of the WCS Class of 2022 scored at or above all four college readiness benchmarks set by the ACT.
Based on Spring 2023 TCAP results from the TDOE, WCS ranked highest overall in Achievement and End of Course performance. District performance on individual tests and for various student groups is available under State Assessments on TDOE's Data Downloads & Request page.
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 Exemplary District and 29 schools were designated Reward Schools for 2022.
