Academic Success

Academic Success represents success in school at the early childhood, elementary, middle, and high school levels. Success in school and achieving positive academic outcomes at the elementary, middle, and high school levels, sets children and youth up to have positive economic, health, and well-being outcomes later in life.

The outcomes that Forsyth Futures tracks under Academic Success include measures at different stages of child and youth development, including Early Childhood Literacy, Reading Proficiency, Math Proficiency, Preparation for College or Career, and High School Graduation.
