Valdosta - A South Georgia school is getting big bucks to improve student achievement.

Valdosta High School is one of only three schools in the nation that received a 925 thousand dollar Small Learning Community Grant. The money will be used to implement new educational programs in the 9th grade academy.

The school will also use part of the funds to enhance its advising programs, and hire a new grant coordinator.

"We're very proud of the climate and the culture we have here now but there's always room for improvement and we want to strive for excellence, and with this money, it will put us in a position to be able to do that," said VHS Principal Brett Stanton.

The grant comes from the Federal Department of Education.
