LISBON

McKinley Elementary School is the only Mahoning Valley school to be recognized by the Ohio Department of Education as a High Progress School of Honor for improving academic achievement among students, including many from economically disadvantaged homes.

Thirty-seven Ohio schools earned the distinction, scoring in the top 10 percent of schools as ranked by gains in reading and mathematics combined proficiency in all tested grades for the past five years.

The schools also are in the top 10 percent for gains in graduation rate during the past five years. ODE also considers Adequate Yearly Progress and Value-Added measures of student growth and Local Report Card ratings when determining award selection.

“High Progress Schools of Honor establish an educational goal for their students and continue to pursue and exceed that goal each year,” Richard A. Ross, state superintendent of public instruction, said in a news release. “The principals, teachers, parents and community members provide a high-quality education and believe that children can overcome significant challenges, and that they can learn.”

ODE previously recognized 141 Schools of Promise and 37 High Performing Schools of Honor including several in the Valley.
