Morningside Elementary School is among 26 schools throughout the state that earned the 2011 Georgia Schools of Excellence in Student Achievement recognition. Morningside Elementary was among only 13 schools recognized for being in the top 10 percent of schools, as measured by state assessments in reading and mathematics.
Like the other recognized schools, Morningside will receive $1,000 from Georgia Natural Gas, which can be used for any purpose. Georgia Schools of Excellence in Student Achievement are recognized in two categories – top 10 percent in Georgia as measured by state assessments in reading and mathematics and greatest gains for schools that demonstrate the largest continuous gains in student achievement for the past three years as measured by state assessments.
“I congratulate the students, faculty and staff of Morningside Elementary School for this stellar achievement,” said Superintendent Erroll B. Davis Jr. “When you consider that only 26 schools throughout the state earned this recognition, it is certainly an achievement to be celebrated by the entire district.”
