Port Gibson Middle School in Claiborne County, MS, has an enrollment of 374 students in grades 6-8. 100% of the students receive free and reduced lunches, and almost 100% of the students are African American. The year prior to Generation Ready partnering with Port Gibson, the school received a state accountability rating of “F.” The teachers at Port Gibson felt no sense of urgency to improve the school’s “F” rating, motivation was low, and teacher absenteeism was problematic. Expectations for increasing student achievement and improving poor behavior were also low.
