INDIANAPOLIS (WLFI) – The list of Indiana’s Four Star Schools for 2012-2013 were released by the state Tuesday.

She said there were a total of 311 schools that received the award throughout the state.

“I am honored to name these schools as our Four Star Schools for this year,” Ritz said in a release to News 18. “Winning this award required excellent work by teachers, administrators, students and parents throughout the year and on behalf of the entire Indiana Department of Education I send them my sincere congratulations.”
