The Albemarle School district received recognition from business circulation Expansion Magazine for their quality of education. The district received a gold medal.
The magazine ranks all public secondary school districts in the country. The gold medal rating puts Albemarle's school district in the top 17% of the 2,819 districts evaluated nationwide.
The study included more than 35 million students. It's a recognition that has local educators proud of their program.
"We're pretty excited about this simply because it was an unsolicited recognition, which provides a lot of credibility to the work we are doing as a school division," said Bernard Hairston, Executive Director of Strategic Planning.
The gold medal is the highest recognition any school district can receive.
