Wrightstown elementary is being honored for having high test scores, and helping close the achievement gap.
The state Department of Public Instruction is highlighting schools that met specific standards in those two areas. Only nine in the state were singled out, for being among the best at both.
Wrightstown District Administrator Carla Buboltz says the first word that comes to mind is "pride." She says she knows how hard teachers, staff, students and parents have worked on making sure every kid can get a quality education.
The state recognized McKinley elementary in Appleton, Roosevelt elementary in Neenah, and New London's Parkview elementary for making progress on the achievement gap.
