ALBANY, GA (WALB) – The prestigious magazine U.S. News & World Report contains an article that lists some area schools their study deems worthy of praise.

The publication did the study in collaboration with School Evaluation Services, a K-12 education and data research and analysis business that provides parents with education data.

It seeks to analyze academic and enrollment data from more than 21,000 public high schools to find the top performers in America.

These top schools were placed into gold, silver, bronze, or honorable mention categories.

Georgia had 29 schools recognized in the list, with only one school, John S. Davidson Fine Arts School in Augusta, earning the gold medal status.

The Peach State had 10 schools reach the silver medal, and 18 win bronze status.

The schools in Southwest Georgia were: Crisp County High School, Mitchell County High, and Schley County High School.
