South Vigo, four other Wabash Valley schools get Four Star status

Must be in top 25 percent of ISTEP categories

TERRE HAUTE — Three Wabash Valley high schools and two local elementary schools are among Indiana’s Four Star schools for 2012-13, Superintendent of Public Instruction Glenda Ritz announced Tuesday.

The local schools are: Terre Haute South Vigo, Sullivan and South Putnam high schools; and Clay City and Clay County’s Jackson Township elementary schools.

To achieve this designation, a school must be in the top 25th percentile of schools in three ISTEP-based categories. A total of 311 schools received the award throughout the state.

Ritz, quoted in a press release, said: “I am honored to name these schools as our Four Star Schools for this year. Winning this award required excellent work by teachers, administrators, students and parents throughout the year.”
