ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A Dougherty County Elementary school, that went from worst to first, is receiving national attention. International Studies Elementary Charter School will be featured in a newsletter published by the United States Department of Education.

The Charter school, where students have a demanding international baccalaureate curriculum, is one of only five in the nation recognized as a National School of Excellence. After 30 years in education, Wanda Mallard retired as the principal of the school last year, but is still full of pride for the accomplishments the students and staff made.

She said, "You can just look at and enjoy the atmosphere of achievement when you walk in the door, so to say the least, it has really been good." The article will be in this month's back to school newsletter.
