ATLANTA (AP) - Eight Georgia schools have earned national recognition from the U.S. Department of Education for gains in academic achievement.

Georgia Department of Education spokesman Matt Cardoza said in a statement Tuesday that the schools’ academic performance improved because of students, teachers, education leaders and parents working together to improve student achievement.

Georgia’s Blue Ribbon schools are: Wadsworth Magnet School for High Achievers; Medlock Bridge Elementary School; Lake Oconee Academy; South Forsyth Middle School; Centralhatchee Elementary School; Elite Scholars Academy; Stallings Island Middle School and Big A Elementary Schools.

Cardoza says schools selected for the honor are nominated by the chief state school officer in each state and the U.S. Secretary of Education.
