INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction Glenda Ritz announced Indiana’s 4 Star schools for 2012-13. 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.
Rushville Consolidated High School was one of those school earning the Four Star distinction.
“Only a very small percentage of schools in Indiana receive this designation. This is a tremendous accomplishment and is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the staff and students at RCHS. Being named a Four Star School is a direct reflection of our mantra: Excellence is Our Expectation,” RCHS Principal Rob Hadley said.
Superintendent Ritz congratulated these schools receiving the honor.
“I am honored to name these schools as our Four Star Schools for this year,” Ritz said. “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.”
A complete list of the schools that received the award can be found on the Indiana Department of Education website.
