West Manor Elementary earns top state award

West Manor Elementary School is among the top 10 percent of schools in the state, earning the 2009 Georgia Schools of Excellence in Student Achievement designation.

“I want to personally congratulate the students, teachers and staff at West Manor Elementary for their outstanding achievement,” said APS Superintendent Dr. Beverly L. Hall. “Your performance is reflective of what we are experiencing across the district in terms of the tangible impact of our decade-long school reform initiatives.”

A total of 27 schools from across Georgia were singled out for their student performance in two categories — greatest academic gains and the top 10 percent in overall student achievement. Qualifying schools are selected from each Congressional district based on student performance as measured by assessments in reading and mathematics.

“These schools are getting great results from all students in many different areas,” said State Superintendent of Schools Kathy Cox. “The teachers, students and administrators at these schools truly represent excellence.”
