North Country schools get high marks

Listen to this story
An education advocacy group has issued report cards to schools across New York, and the North Country had some high marks for student performance.

Abraham Wing Elementary school in the Glens Falls area ranked first in the state for student performance among low income districts. Voters in Abraham Wing recently voted no on a proposal to merge with Glens Falls Central School.

No middle or high schools from the region were among the top 10 in their categories. But many North Country high schools received a mark of "A" for student performance.

Keene Valley Central ranked 17th in the state among high schools. Lake George, Schroon Lake, Potsdam Senior High, Lowville High, Hermon-DeKalb, and Parishville-Hopkinton also received top marks.

The report cards were released Wednesday by a group called New York CAN - which stands for Campaign for Achievement Now. They graded schools based on State Assessments for grades three through eight and Regents Exams for high schools. The data is from the 2010-2011 school year.
