4/16/14 Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction Glenda Ritz announced Tuesday Indiana’s 4-Star schools for 2012-2013. In order to achieve this designation, a school must be in the top 25th percentile of schools in three ISTEP-based categories. A total of 311 schools received the award throughout the state.
Looking at the schools in our area: the Bremen Senior High School received the distinction while John Glenn High School in Walkerton, Triton Elementary School in Bourbon and Webster Elementary School in Plymouth also received the award.
Superintendent Ritz congratulated these schools Tuesday. “I am honored to name these schools as our Four Star Schools for this year,” said Ritz. “Winning this award required excellent work by teachers, administrators, students and parents throughout the year and on behalf of the entire Indiana Department of Education I send them my sincere congratulations.”
