Three Memphis-area schools have made the list of “America’s Healthiest Schools.”

Three hundred and twenty-eight schools across the nation were named by the Alliance for a Healthier Generation, an organization founded by the American Heart Association and Clinton Foundation.

Two Shelby County Schools, Charjean Elementary School and Northwest Prep Academy, made the list. Dyersburg Intermediate School also made the list.

These schools meet or exceed standards set by the program for serving healthier meals and snacks, getting students moving more, offering high-quality physical and health education, and empowering school leaders to become healthy role models.
