    Normally when you do a story about a shark you do a stand-up on the beach but not this time.  See these fishermen don't want to tell me where their fishing hole is.  It's not just to protect their spot

JONESBOROUGH, TN (WJHL) -

A pep-rally with teachers dressed as cheerleaders and the cast of Duck Dynasty.

All in celebration a huge boost in academic achievement at David Crockett High School.

The Tennessee Value Added Assessment System scores schools with values one to five, five being the highest.

In the past Crockett students tested at one and this year they earned a four!

School officials say this was an effort that took students, teachers, faculty, and the community.

"We've all had to buy in to what we were preaching and that was higher demands on our students and expectations and they've met the challenge. I'm very proud of them, but we still got another step to go," said principal Andrew Hare.

As students left the pep-rally they were all given a bracelet that says "DCHS drive for five"!
