— Officials say students at Northern Nash High School are moving in the right direction.

Last fall, a 12-person assistance team was assigned to the school by the state.

In the last year, the proficiency rate jumped from 49 percent to 64 percent.

The school's principal says the growth is astounding, and it was the best testing year for the school to date.
