O.B. Middle School earns “College Ready” recognition
Orange Beach was among seven middle schools in Alabama to receive the A+ College Ready ‘School of Excellence’ award for record academic growth during their time in the A+ College Ready Middle School Training and Incentive Program.
The program has dramatically increased student access and success in Advanced Placement math, science, English, social studies, and computer science in the past decade. The middle school program includes student incentives based upon student achievement and growth as measured by the PSAT along with the Alabama Comprehensive Assessment Program. Orange Beach had greater improvement on the PSAT from the 7th to 8th grade year than all six other schools receiving the recognition.
