BRAZIL, Ind. (WTHI) - Three Wabash Valley schools received Four-Star status.

The Indiana Department of Education announced the newest round of Four-Star schools. 

Jackson Township and Staunton Elementary schools in Brazil along with Flaget Elementary school in Vincennes made the high honor. 

Clay Community schools say they are proud to put education first. Jackson Township Elementary in Brazil was awarded Four-Stars for the 6th year in a row. 

Daniel Webster has been teaching at Jackson Township Elementary for 26 years. He teaches fifth-grade. 

"Those are my kids," Webster said. "I care about each and every one of them."

The school means everything to him.

"Hard work pays off," he said. 

Webster says it's the dedication to the kids and everyone in the building that makes such a honor even possible. 

"We're more than a team, we are a family here," he said. 

Rachel Rounds, a fifth-grader at Jackson Township Elementary, says she loves coming to school every day. 

"The teachers make it easy and are nice," Rounds said. "They take their time to teach it to us."

Schools must meet a certain criteria to receive four-stars, that includes excellent in ISTEP pass rates and they must receive an "A" for the year. 

Brad Ennen, principle at Jackson Township Elementary, says it is not only the faculty to thank for.

"I always tell parents that you are the best teacher your child is ever going to have," Ennen said. "I always tell parents that you are the best teacher your child is ever going to have."

238 Hoosier schools received the award.
