Top of their class: six Northshore schools earn achievement awards

Six Northshore elementary schools earned 2010 Washington Achievement awards. East Ridge, Kenmore, Sunrise, Wellington and Woodin elementary schools earned awards for overall excellence, and Maywood Hills and Woodin elementary schools were recognized for closing the achievement gap. Representatives from these schools will be honored during a ceremony April 27 at Lincoln High in Tacoma.

Schools are selected based on their statewide assessment data for the three previous years. Schools are recognized for top performance in seven categories: overall excellence, language areas, math, science, extended graduation rate, improvement and closing the achievement gap. This is the first year schools are being recognized specifically for improvement and closing the achievement gap.
