Thirteen Ohio high schools were selected as 2010 High Schools That Work (HSTW) by the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB). Ohio leads the pack nationally, with more HSTW awards than any other state this year.
The Ohio HSTW winners are among 62 high schools nationally being named to one of five SREB award categories, which are based on 2010 HSTW assessment and state performance data.

Seven Ohio schools won the Pacesetter School designation, five were given Gold Achievement Awards and one school was presented the Gold Improvement Award.
