The state's top school official congratulated a high achieving High School in South Georgia on Thursday.

Dr. John Barge, The state school superintendent made a stop at Mitchell County High School on Thursday.

He got to observe some unique practices the High School has in place that have helped keep kids in school and helped them to graduate.

"When you look at their data, when you look at their graduation rate, it is better than the state average, and they are a high poverty system, they are a high minority system, and so when you are getting the kind of results that they are with those challenges out of the gate, they are obviously doing something right," said state superintendent, Dr. John Barge.

Barge plans to visit every school district in the state.
