4 Floyd County Schools Recognized as a 2012 NCEA Higher Performing School
The National Center for Educational Achievement (NCEA), a department of ACT, Inc., recognized McDowell Elementary, Osborne Elementary, May Valley and Allen Central Middle as being named to the 2012 NCEA Higher Performing Schools List for the state of Kentucky!
Recognition as an NCEA Higher Performing School indicates a school’s deep commitment to raising student achievement and putting more students on the path to college and career readiness—regardless of socio-economic barriers or any other obstacles that might otherwise impede success. These schools stand out as shining examples of what can be achieved when staff, students and parents work together toward a unified goal of preparing students for life after high school.
