Gainesville High School has PLATINUM PRIDE!!
The “Platinum Pride” card is designed to motivate and reward students for passing all sections (Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies and Writing) of the Georgia High School Graduation Test on the first attempt. Although students can pass the test and earn the right to walk at graduation with a minimum score of 500, the state determines a school’s AYP (Adequate
Yearly Progress) status from the number of students who score a 516 or higher. In addition, students have multiple attempts to take and pass the test prior to graduation; however, the school is measured on how many students are successful on the first attempt in their junior year.
As a result, AYP at GHS now stands for “Are You Platinum?” Platinum Pride card recipients have great benefits at GHS and within the local community.

Platinum Pride additional requirements:
Earning the Platinum Pride card…the credit they deserve…is one part of the program; however, keeping the privilege is another part of the program. Platinum Pride recipients must remain in good academic standing and consistently demonstrate respect, restraint and responsibility at all times. Students must demonstrate they possess strong “credit” in the area of academics and behavior. Students who do not maintain outstanding credit will have their credit denied…just like the real world! The Platinum Pride program is solely the principal’s program. Privileges can be rescinded by the administration at any time.
