Elementary, Middle, and High School Georgia Milestones Information
Georgia Milestones testing begins Monday, April 25 (May 4 for elementary schools). The test measures knowledge and skills in language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies and provides critical information about achievement and readiness for next level of learning. With the absence of significant testing data from the last two years, this year’s scores will be used to establish a new baseline for schools and the district. Participation is crucial. The district expects all students in grades 3-8 and those in a high school end-of-year (EOC) course to participate. Thank you for partnering with the district to ensure a high rate of student participation.
- Elementary Schools
- Middle Schools
April 25th-May 6th
- High Schools (American Literature and Composition, Algebra I, Biology and U.S. History)
Georgia Milestones Testing Schedule and Resources for Grades 3-5
Attention 3rd, 4th, and 5th Grade Parents
The schedule for Milestones Testing has been set. Testing will begin as soon as school begins each day. It is important that your child arrives to school on time on these days.
May 4 ELA Section 1
May 5 ELA Section 2
May 6 ELA Section 3
May 10 Science Section 1 and 2 – 5th grade only
May 11 Math Section 1

Teachers are working hard to prepare students and may provide at home practice opportunities as well. These assignments are appropriate for all students as they are grade level standards- based and not specifically Milestones related. Below are some resources for your information about the test.
