Head of the class

October 31, 2006

Albany - The head of Georgia schools was in Albany Tuesday to recognize a school that's at the head of the national class. State School Superintendent Kathy Cox praised students and faculty at Robert A. Cross Middle Magnet School for receiving a National no child left behind blue ribbon.

The school was one of only six in the state to receive the award.  Of the award, she says she is, "Full of pride, also as a mother of a 7th grader. I know that Middle school can be kind of difficult but if you get the right formula of caring, supportive, well-trained teachers who know how to tap the resources of those kids and get their excitement directed in the right place of academics you can just do wonderful things."

Robert Cross was the only school in Southwest Georgia to receive a blue ribbon, though that's not the only award the school has received this year. They were recognized as a school of excellence and have a high performance principal.
