MAMS Ranks As One of the Best in the Nation
Mount Airy City Schools is proud to announce that Mount Airy Middle School has been named a 2014 National School to Watch! This award designates MAMS as one of the best middle schools in the nation!
The National Forum to Accelerate Middle Grades Reform founded this award in 1999 for middle schools that have academic excellence. Many middle schools are often strong in some areas but few are strong in all areas. This award works to identify schools that intersect and are strong in all areas using qualitative and quantitative data. The Forum requires an intense visit of interviews, observation and data collection for this award.
“Schools to Watch is doing absolutely invaluable work in the middle grades. You are helping to lead the field in middle grade reform—and as a nation, we do far too little to celebrate success in education.”
-Arne Duncan, U.S. Secretary of Education
