As a government rule, all public schools must present their students with a standardized test in order to effectively gauge how the pupils match up to their peers across the country.

There are a variety of tests that students can take in order to determine if they meet the academic standards of their grade level. The Stanford Achievement Test (SAT-10) is presented to children in states such as Alabama and Arkansas.

Students at Johnson Elementary School in Alabama recently were recognized as the top performers on the Stanford Achievement Test for Limestone County, according to the News Courier.

However, some academic officials were not surprised by these findings, as they suggest that the educators work rigorously with their students to ensure that they meet their academic proficiency.

"I am surprised, and not surprised, because our teachers work hard every day," school principal Dr. Casey Lewis told the source. "We try to reach every student every day. I am just proud of each and every one of our students and teachers."
