BOSTON — Two South County schools were among 57 schools in the state that were recognized for their progress in closing achievement gaps last week.

Lenox Memorial Middle and High School was recognized for being in the 95th percentile of MCAS (Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System) scores in the state. Muddy Brook Elementary School in Great Barrington was recognized for their overall increase in MCAS scores between 2017 and 2018. Both schools were among the 52 named Schools of Recognition, which were determined by using the state’s Accountability System, which measures school achievement against state proficiency goals.

Education Secretary James Peyser said in a statement that the 57 schools were essentially recognized for continually looking for better ways to support their students.
