King-Edison Elementary School was honored as one of the 14 highest performing Edison Schools in the U.S. The school won the double Four-Star Achievement Award from the New York-based company.
Vice principal Shivaun Stanton credited the success to "highly dedicated and focused teachers . . . strong support from our district and the support of our parents."
King-Edison made significant academic achievement gains and is no longer at risk of being taken over by the state.
The school also received an award for excellent financial management.
