Amherst Central High School, which was recognized in the spring as a high-performing school by the state Education Department, was featured in a department publication this month.
The high school was the spotlight school in a Strategies for Success feature in the December 2017 issue of OA Newsline, which is published by the department's Office of Accountability. The publication is sent out to office staff and to other groups statewide, including superintendents.
Amherst Central High School was one of eight high schools in the area, and 185 in New York, named a 2017-18 High Performing Reward School in May for high academic achievement and progress, without large gaps in performance between specific populations of students in English language arts and math.
OA Newsline lauded the school for a "data-driven framework for success" built with support from the district's Board of Education.
