Seven local schools are soaring above most, landing in the top five percent of schools for growth and academic achievement.

This is the second year the state is recognizing Tennessee schools that have shown the most progress from year-to-year, as well as those with the highest achievement scores on statewide tests.

In our region, three schools were recognized for progress: Holston View Elementary, South Greene High School and Mount Carmel Elementary.

Four schools were recognized for performance -- University School, Lake Ridge Elementary, Fairmont Elementary and Towne Acres Elementary, which was recognized in both categories.
