Schools To Watch is a national designation awarded to middle level institutions of learning that embody the ideals of four domains: Academic Excellence, Social Equity, Developmental Responsiveness, and Organizational Structures and Processes, which ensure the implementation of effective educational practices for the young adolescents of our nation as outlined by the ongoing work of The National Forum to Accelerate Middle-Grades Reform and the Association for Middle Level Education (AMLE).
We have received our initial designation joining only twenty-five schools in the state of South Carolina and only 450 nation wide, we are now a showcase school for the National Forum to Accelerate Middle-Grades Reform. Read more HERE.
