Two Houston County schools are among 28 statewide that have been deemed 2012 Georgia Schools of Excellence in Student Achievement.

Schools are honored for showing the highest performance and the highest progress across the state. Quail Run Elementary is among the state’s highest performing schools, and Centerville Elementary is among the schools that have made the most progress, state School Superintendent John Barge announced in a statement Tuesday.

The schools are chosen based on their performance on the College and Career-Ready Performance Index, the state’s new system for measuring schools. Each school will receive $1,000 from Georgia Natural Gas.

“These schools are the epitome of excellence,” Barge said in the news release. “With our new, more rigorous accountability system, these schools really shine.”
