The first semester has come to a close and we are at the mid-point of the year. Let’s look at how successful our students have been thus far.
· PHS students again ranked the top school in the Charlotte in SAT scores.
· Six students have been selected from Providence by CMS to move forward in the NC Governor’s School selection process.
· Eight students were named National Merit Scholarship semi-finalists and are competing for $2500 scholarships.
· Every fall sports team participated in the playoff season and currently PHS ranks 1st in our conference for the Wells Fargo Cup (a competition between all 4A schools for best overall athletic teams).
Providence remains the highest performing school in CMS and is nationally ranked as a top-achieving high school. Test scores from 1st semester state tests appear to be right on track for that to continue. We have only received raw scores but are awaiting growth scores so we know if students exceeded the growth score predicted by the state statisticians. I will keep you informed as principals receive that information.
As you see, at Providence, all three A’s are strong: academics, the arts, and athletics. The State of our School is strong; yet we have ambitious plans to continue to improve as we move into second semester.
I thank our parent community and especially our PTSO which helps us keep the focus on academics. Thank you to all of our parents for your monetary donations to Providence and for volunteering at our school. Strong parental support is and will continue to be a critical component of academic excellence at Providence High School.
Best wishes for a great 2nd semester.
