The Lighthouse Academic Honor Roll award recognizes Leader in Me Schools that have both met the rigorous requirements necessary to achieve and maintain Lighthouse School Certification and shown exemplary academic growth or proficiency as measured by state accountability standards. 

Academic distinction is determined through the data analysis of an independent nonprofit website. The site’s algorithm scores on a percentile ranking, comparing like schools across the state.  To meet the academic proficiency standard, a school must be at or above the 85th percentile for the state’s combined proficiency standards. To meet the academic growth standard, the school must be at or above the 50th percentile and have shown a 5 percent growth from the previous year’s percentile ranking. The percentile ranking for Bovina Elementary was 92.2% in Mississippi, showing exemplary academic proficiency.
