Test scores are in and the Harrison County school system is patting itself on the back.

“It’s going to be a time of celebration for us,” said superintendent Andy Dotson Friday afternoon. “All of our schools are showing improvement.”

As a district, Harrison County schools jumped five points to an overall score of 88, based on a 140 scale.

Previously ranked 107th out of 175 school districts in the state, the jump now ranks Harrison County as 67.

All the elementary schools, as well as the middle school and high school showed increases from the previous year’s scores.

“I’m very, very pleased with the effort of our students,” Dotson said.
