Milton Public Schools announced Wednesday that its schoolwide and district results from the 2012 Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System showed that all six schools received a “Level 1” designation.

Level 1 designations are given to schools that demonstrate high achievement, make strong progress, or narrow proficiency gaps, a news release said.

The scores also placed the district in the top 25 percent of public and charter school districts around the Commonwealth.

Two of Milton’s elementary schools, Collicot and Glover, were named as Commendation Schools by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education for high student growth. .

“These are the kind of results every district hopes for,” Superintendent Mary Gormley said in a statement. “Each of our six schools attained the Level 1 designation and we couldn’t be more proud of our staff and our students.”

Administrators will give a detailed presentation of the data at a 7 p.m. Oct. 3 School Committee meeting. Individual scores will also be mailed to families that week.
