"We're excited," assistant principal Tracy Watson said. "What we've been doing is paying off."

Making headlines
Thomas has been making headlines lately for academics. Last year the school was named a National Blue Ribbon School.

As the Times-Gazette reported last August, Thomas Magnet, Community Elementary and Eakin Elementary were among the top schools in the state for student performance during the 2013-2014 academic year, according to the Tennessee Department of Education.

Academic focus
The school has been doing new things to boost academics, such as adding enrichment programs every month instead of once a year, Watson said. Students work together by groups of mixed grades. The fourth-graders have worked on an activity to learn how to clean up oil spills.

In the past year, Thomas has started up a Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) lab and launched a Lego robotics team.

High achievers
Thomas opened its doors as a magnet school in 2009 to serve high-achieving students throughout Bedford County.

The school focuses on technology, leadership and after-school enrichment programs. The school building opened in 1963 and was named Ervin H. Thomas School in honor of a former superintendent.

With a distinguished past and a busy curriculum in the present, Thomas likely will continue to make headlines such as its ranking with SchoolDigger.com.

Methodology
To come up with its ranking for Thomas and the other schools, the SchoolDigger.com site combined the average third and fourth grade scores last year for math and English Language Arts and added them together.

The website lists an average math score last year at Thomas as 92.3 and an average English Language Arts score as 87.2. It then adds the scores to come up with a number to rank each school.Source:t-g.com
