Which schools are the cleanest and which schools are the dirtiest in the Muscgoee County School District? This year’s results are here.
MCSD inspectors use a standardized scoresheet to evaluate the cleanliness of each school. According to their reports, Downtown Elementary Magnet Academy is the district’s cleanest school building with an average monthly score of 96.4 on the 100-point scale, and Spencer High School is the dirtiest with an average monthly score of 80.
Only 13 of MCSD’s 57 schools received a 90 or better, a drop from last year’s 18 but better than the eight from two years ago. And for the second straight year, no MCSD school was rated in the 70s, after two were at the level in 2015-16.
St. Elmo Center for the Gifted had been rated as MCSD’s cleanest school the past two years, with a 96.5 in 2015-16 and a 97 in 2016-17, but it slipped to third place with a 95.9 this year. Carver High School improved from a 93.8 last year to a 96.1 to claim second place this year.
Last year, Georgetown Elementary School was rated as the dirtiest with an 82.6, but it has improved to the middle of the pack with an 84 this year.
Two years ago, Rigdon Road Elementary School was rated as the dirtiest with a 78.2. This year, it is in the middle of the pack with an 84.3.
