A handful of Northland schools are being recognized as top performers among schools across Minnesota.

A campaign is touring the state to talk about what's working and how it can help improve education at schools that aren't doing as well.

Their "Road to Success" tour brought Minnesota Campaign for Achievement Now, or MinnCAN, to Churchill Elementary in Cloquet Tuesday morning. The school is one of four in the city ranked between second and sixth in the state for Native American student performance.

Principal David Wangen told Eyewitness News "our student achievement has been really high for the last number of years attributed to the great staff, hard working students and wonderful community that supports all of our Cloquet schools."

MinnCAN said they take viewpoints from across the state and bring them back to the Twin Cities where they say policymakers can then shape education for future students.
