To earn the distinction, a school must be accredited by the Indiana State Board of Education, meet Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) as defined by the The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB), and perform in the top 25% of all the schools in the State in each of the following four areas:
student attendance rates,
mathematics proficiency scores,
English/language arts proficiency scores, and
the percent of students passing both English/language arts and mathematics.
