The old saying “it takes a village” really rings true at this time of year. The culmination of years of hard work from students, families, teachers, coaches, administrators, and support staff will be on display as we celebrate the graduating class of 2023 this week. And while the students are the ones who will take center stage at their graduation ceremonies, everyone in the Barrow County community contributed to the success of these students.
The class of 2023 took some extra effort as they were the class that finished their freshman year when the world shut down. They are a unique bunch whose four years of high school were marked by experiences no one could have imagined. Through creativity and compassion, the schools found ways to make sure students got a quality education. The class of 2023 persevered through these past four years and will leave Barrow County School System as graduates.
We are so proud to celebrate the class of 2023 as they go beyond the hallways of our schools. We look forward to seeing their successes as they pursue their passions. We also cannot begin to express our gratitude for the efforts of the village over these past years. Congratulations, graduates!
We are proud of our “Grad Track” students! They are students who either failed one or more academic classes and/or are behind in credits needed for graduation with their cohort class. Graduation Specialists at all three Barrow County School System (BCSS) high schools support students who meet these qualifications.
