There is good news for Albemarle County Schools. They have received straight A's from the state's education officials.
Every school in Albemarle County has been given full accreditation based on standards of learning test scores from last school year.
Full accreditation is the highest rating a school can earn in the Virginia Assessment Program.
"We realized there are students who need to be prepared for a lifelong of learning, and as such we are really focusing on our students' ability to apply what they know in our classrooms," said Albemarle County Schools Assistant Superintendent Dr. Bruce Benson.
The subjects used for ratings in the "Standards of Learning" tests were English, Math, Science, and History.
