Ascend Education recently announced that a record 37 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 37 Gold Medal schools or districts will receive an award commemorating their success.

These 37 schools represent some of the best and most successful math implementations in our country during this ESSA era. In each of these schools students made tremendous strides far beyond what they have done in the past without this personalized learning model.  I am extremely proud of the important job these educators are doing to help their students succeed in math, gain confidence and positively advance in life.

The 9,851 students in these 37 Gold Medal schools mastered 271,313 math objectives and worked 191,720 hours in Ascend Math.  Most students gained from 1 to 4 grade levels in math. The complete Honor Roll of all Gold Medalists can be viewed at
