Robert Cross Middle School is one has made tremendous progress in test scores recently, and that's why Mrs. Deal and her staff picked this area to visit.

"To see this school make such progress is exciting," Deal said. "We just want to see that all over the state of Georgia. Because we know we have good teachers out there. We have good administrators, we know we have good students. And we have to get all the combination to work together."
