School is in session and Quinta Brunson along with the rest of the Abbott Elementary family are at the top of the class!

The hit comedy series wrapped its first successful season on Tuesday (April 12) and earned a rare perfect score on Rotten Tomatoes, becoming one of the highest-ranking TV shows the site.

The show now stands with AMC's Breaking Bad, and NBC's Brooklyn 99 in Rotten Tomatoes' TV series rankings. Abbott has also continuously broken viewership norms for sitcoms throughout its first season, including earning ABC's highest ratings for a comedy in years.

"Abbott Elementary earns top marks for its empathetic yet sidesplitting critique of the US education system, plus some extra credit for a deftly handled will-they-won't-they dynamic," Rotten Tomatoes wrote about the Philadelphia-based series.

Brunson was honored in her native Philly by the City Council for the show, and has been applauded by educators for shedding a light "on the joy, struggle, dedication, and resilience of Philadelphia teachers and school communities."

The series has already been renewed for Season 2 and though an official release date hasn't been share, Quinta told Entertainment Weekly she's "excited to see these people grow as teachers, which also means watching them grow as individuals outside of the school."
