The community in and around Covington has been hard hit over the past several years by the economic downturn and the factory closures that accompanied it. The recipient of the 2013 SCORE Prize for high schools, Covington High School, has raised the bar for its students, and the impact is seen throughout the community as employers return to Covington knowing they can find well-educated talent. 

At Covington High, data drives instruction and common assessments measure students against the bar that must be cleared to prepare students for college. That work has paid off. In addition to strong overall assessment results, Covington has among the highest Algebra I TVAAS growth SCOREs in the state and continues to challenge students in a way that will lead to success in college and beyond.
