Three schools in Granger and one each in South Bend and Mishawaka are considered among the absolute best in the State of Indiana.

The Indiana Department of Education announced the annual “Four Star Schools” honorees this morning. The designation is given to the schools recognized by the Department as the best in the state.

Making the list locally are Queen of Peace School in Mishawaka, Christ the King School in South Bend and Saint Pius X School in Granger. All three private schools are in the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend system. Two schools from the Penn-Harris-Madison School Corporation, Northpoint Elementary and Mary Frank Harris Elementary in Granger, also earned the top honors.

To receive Four Star designation, a school must receive an “A” on the state’s A-thru-F accountability system, have excellent ISTEP pass rates, carry an overall high graduation rate, and show success in closing achievement gaps.

Here’s the complete list of Four Star Schools in Indiana.
