Forty-two Kansas elementary schools, 10 middle/junior high schools and 18 high schools were recently recognized as part of the seventh annual Governor’s Achievement Awards, honoring top performing schools in the state. MacAthur Elementary of Liberal was among those recognized. The school must have been among the top 5 percent of schools in both reading and mathematics on the state assessments at its respective level and met one additional measure. For elementary schools and middle/junior high schools that measure is attendance and high schools the measure is graduation rate.

“The Governor’s Achievement Award is a significant recognition for Kansas schools,” said Kansas Education Commissioner Dr. Diane DeBacker. “The accomplishment recognizes a school’s high expectations and the ability of the school staff to assist students in achieving to those expectations.”
