The school is one of 132 schools of the 349 Indiana public high schools and charter schools to make it on to the list. Clay City is also one of the 23 honor roll schools.
"We are very honored and proud," Clay City Junior/Senior High School Principal Jeff Bell told The Brazil Times. "We have an outstanding school-community support that is made up of the faculty, staff, students, parents and community."
Indiana school ranks were based on ISTEP+ scores, graduation rates, SAT participation rates and scores as well as Advance Placement scores.
"The administration is very proud of the students and teachers at Clay City," Supt. Dan Schroeder said.
"Being one of the 132 schools to make it on the list is an honor, to be one of the 23 honor roll schools, for the third year in a row, is fabulous," Schroeder added.
Clay City was chosen to be an honor roll school based on the participation in the free/reduced lunch program and the academic achievement of the students.
"It is quite an honor and tribute to the people that work to make this a terrific school," Bell said.
"I would like to thank the students and teachers. Their hard work in the classrooms have not gone unnoticed."
