Mountain View-based everything giant Google announced on Friday that there are now 2000 schools using Chromebooks for Education all around the world. Rewinding three months there were only 1000 schools, which shows that the adoption rate over the last three months has been a very nice 100%.

Once the milestone was reached, Google showed off a list of schools that recently joined the Chromebook world:

Transylvania County Schools in rural North Carolina deploying 900 devices.

St.Thomas Aquinas High School in Florida going one-to-one with 2,200 devices.

Rocketship Education in the Bay Area of California using 1,100 Chromebooks.

 

It shouldn't be long before more and more schools take advantage of the Chromebooks, but this list would be a bit biased toward Google as those schools most likely ordered the most Chromebook's out of all of the additional 1000 schools from the past three months.
