    Congratulations to Dutchtown High School, Eagle's Landing High School, Locust Grove High School, Ola High School, Stockbridge High School, and Woodland High School on being approved by the Georgia Department of Education to award the International Skills Diploma Seal along with other distinguished high schools across the state of Georgia.  

    This is an outstanding achievement for World Languages and Henry County Schools!  It is an honor for six of our high schools and our World Languages students to be recognized as ISDS Star Students by State Superintendent Richard Woods at the awards ceremonies that took place in April of 2016 and 2017 as well as an honor for the 23 graduates that received the seal this past school year. We are so proud of our World Languages Teachers and students.

    We are proud to announce that one of our ISDS Star Students from Woodland High School was invited to present her ISDS Capstone at the Awards Ceremony at GaDOE in April 2017. What a great honor for our school district!

    Thank you so much to our teachers for ensuring the success of each student in World Languages. Outstanding!
