Local school gets straight A's

A school with bad grades pulled itself up and made the grades people expect from it's school system.
FOX News Network recently reported that ... "education in the United States is on a decline." While this may be true on a national level, Smyrna, Tenn., can boast of just the opposite!

The quiet little Title I school of John Colemon Elementary, has pulled itself up from 2 F's, 1 D and 1 C to straight A's — something a very small percentage of schools throughout the county or state of Tennessee earn. Schools are graded every year on stringent qualitative and quantitative achievements in the categories: No Child Left Behind, Adequate Yearly Progress and Tennessee Comprehensive Assessment Program.
This plus the Cedar Grove PTO award shows a school system of quality.
