State education officials and Gov. Tate Reeves announced that Mississippi student achievement has reached an all-time high.
According to newly released results from the 2022-23 Mississippi Academic Assessment Program (MAAP), students have now achieved record results in mathematics, English Language Arts, science, and U.S. History.
“This historic news is the direct result of our conservative education reforms and keeping our kids in school during the pandemic,” said Reeves. “The Mississippi Miracle is real, and these new results are further proof of the continued success of our students. Thank you to all of the Mississippi teachers, parents, and students who helped make this record achievement possible.”
The news is the latest in a string of education victories for Mississippi. The state was recently recognized as one of the top five states for high-quality pre-K. Mississippi’s high school graduation rate is currently better than the national average and at an all-time high, and the state is leading the nation in fourth grade reading and math gains.
