Most of these schools have been named Reward Schools for multiple consecutive years.

“I am extremely proud of our 2017-18 Reward Schools,” says Interim Superintendent Shirley Chesser. “To have a third of our schools recognized in either the top 5 or top 10 percent of all schools in the state is a tremendous honor for the schools and the RCPS district as a whole. I commend the hard work and commitment of our teachers, support staff, leaders, students, and parents to maintaining world-class performance and continuous improvement."
