Ascend Education announced today that a record 32 schools are being recognized as Gold Medal schools this year.

The Gold Medal Award was established in 2010 to honor the schools or districts that best demonstrate a dedication to ensuring that all students become successful at math. The Gold Medal nominees all used Ascend Math to supplement their math instruction to achieve results better than they would in the normal classroom environment.  All 32 Gold Medal schools or districts will receive an award commemorating their success.

“These thirty two schools represent some of the best and most successful math implementations in the nation and beyond,” said Kevin Briley, CEO of Ascend Education. “In each of these schools students made tremendous strides far beyond what they have done in the past.  We are extremely proud of what they have accomplished this year.”

The 2,662 students in these 32 Gold Medal schools mastered 95,454 math objectives.  Most students gained from 1 to 5 grade levels in math. The complete Honor Roll of all Gold Medalists can be viewed at
