The Early County School System has had a reputation of delivering excellent educational opportunities for many years.  State School Superintendent Dr. John Barge released October 30, 2014 that Georgia's high school graduation rate (students who graduate four years after entering 9th grade) has increased again.  This year the rate is 72.5% and this is the third straight increase in state rate.  In continuing with Early County's legacy of delivering outstanding education opportunities for students, Dr. Bronwyn Ragan-Martin and Mr. David Ferry, school superintendent and ECHS principal, are proud to announce that Early County High School's graduation rate was 80% for 2014 graduation class which is 7.5% higher than the state average.  "What a testament to how hard all of the schools work to prepare our students to graduate high school and go on to be productive citizens" said Dr. Ragan-Martin.  "I am so proud of all the schools in our system and want to thank them for their hard work and perseverance."
