An elementary school and four high schools will receive recognition Monday for their accomplishments.
Grove Patterson Academy Elementary School will be recognized as one of the nine schools in Ohio featured in the Failure is Not an Option report. The school was selected because it is a high performing school in a high poverty area.
The four high schools, Springfield High School, Anthony Wayne High School, Maumee High School, and Perrysburg High School will be recognized for increasing access to Advance Placement (AP) course work while at the same time increasing the percentage of students earning 3 or higher on AP exams.
