Three Camas schools were among 186 statewide that earned an Achievement Award, considered the highest honor from the state of Washington.
Skyridge Middle School, Liberty Middle School and Camas High School made the list for overall excellence. The schools were judged on overall excellence, language arts, math, science, extended graduation rate, improvement and achievement.
“We’re seeing some very encouraging signs of improvement, especially at the middle school level, where the number of schools rated as ‘good,’ ‘very good’ or ‘exemplary’ has increased by 15 percent from two years ago,” said Randy Dorn, superintendent of public instruction. “We know that this is an extremely challenging task, and we want schools that are heading in the right direction to be rewarded for their hard work.”
The award-winning schools will be honored during a ceremony on Wednesday, April 27 in Tacoma.
