The Virginia Board of Education announced that Jamestown High School and Matoaka Elementary School have each earned a 2018 Distinguished Achievement Award based on their performance in meeting all state and federal benchmarks as well as making progress toward the excellence goals of the Governor and Board of Education. The recognition is part of the state’s annual Virginia Index of Performance awards for advanced learning and achievement.
“We are proud of all the hard work by our students, teachers, administrators and families that has resulted in this recognition,” said Superintendent Olwen Herron.
All schools in Williamsburg-James City County are fully accredited based on student performance on the 2016-17 Standards of Learning tests. Accreditation results for 2017-18 will be released later in the summer.
