Two State School Systems Judged to Be Among America's Best

September 19, 2000

Two West Virginia counties have been judged to be among the best school systems in America.  

Ohio County Schools and Monongalia County Schools were listed in the September/October 2000 issue of Offspring, a national parenting magazine, for being among America?s best 100 school districts.  

"This recognition would not have been possible without dedicated employees, an exemplary teaching staff, strong leadership and enthusiastic community support in Ohio and Monongalia counties," said State Superintendent Dr. David Stewart. "These outstanding systems were judged to be among America's best. This honor reflects favorably on the winning counties and the entire state of West Virginia."  

In comparing school districts across the country, Offspring magazine enlisted the services of a national educational research firm, SchoolMatch, to examine a variety of factors, including cost of living (mean property values and mean property costs) academic performance and expenditures per student, to select systems that spend their dollars wisely, while producing exemplary academic results.
