Whitefish Bay High School was recognized as a school of high achievement during a ceremony at the State Capitol on Tuesday.
At the ceremony, State Superintendent Tony Evers praised the high school for being among 167 schools in the state to receive Title I School of Recognition honors for the 2013‑14 school year.
Special recognition during the event included 14 High‑Achieving schools and 26 High‑Progress schools, with six schools earning both High‑Achieving and High‑Progress honors.
“Partnerships among teachers, parents, administrators, school staff members, and the community contribute to the academic success of students in schools that receive this honor,” Evers said.
Laura Myrah, Interim Superintendent at Whitefish Bay School District, said she was proud of the high school's High Achievement recognition.
“We are proud of our students, teachers and other staff members and our parent community who exhibit high expectations and support for learning and student success,” Myrah said.
Whitefish Bay High School students also earned the honor of achieving the highest average composite ACT score in Wisconsin for 2013 with their 26.0 score.
