SEPTEMBER 25

RALEIGH, NC – Torchlight Academy Charter School in Raleigh ranked number one in student growth index in Math and Reading among all charter schools in the state of North Carolina, according to just released statistics from the N.C. Department of Public Instruction.

“I am absolutely humbled by this number one ranking,” said Dr. Cynthia McQueen, Principal of Torchlight Academy. “We celebrate our academic success, but we must maintain perspective and remember that some very important things can’t be measured by a test, such as character, work ethic and integrity. These attributes are unquantified each year but are an equally important part of student development towards reaching the ultimate goal of making productive global citizens from our student population.”
