Dozens of area schools were named Palmetto Gold and Silver Award recipients by the South Carolina Department of Education on Wednesday.

These awards are given to schools for general performance, closing achievement gaps between subgroups of students or qualifying in both categories. Across the state, 592 schools and career centers were recognized.

Statewide, just 65 schools were given a “gold” designation for both general performance and closing the achievement gap. Of those 65 schools, 8 were located in York, Chester and Lancaster County schools.

“These top 5 percent (of schools) truly are our superstars,” said state superintendent of education Mick Zais in a release.
