Celebrate 12 Reward Schools in Nashville

Woo-hoo!

That’s an entirely appropriate reaction to the news of the day: 12 Metro schools are newly named Tennessee Reward Schools for 2012-13!

Reward Schools are those in the top 5% of schools in the state for performance and the 5% of schools in the state for progress.

Our Reward Schools are:

  • Glendale Elementary – Performance
  • Lockeland Elementary – Performance & Progress
  • Percy Priest Elementary – Performance
  • Head Middle Magnet – Progress
  • Margaret Allen Middle – Progress
  • Meigs Middle Magnet – Performance
  • Martin Luther King, Jr. Magnet – Performance
  • Hume-Fogg Magnet High – Performance
  • KIPP Academy Nashville – Progress
  • Liberty Collegiate Academy – Progress
  • Nashville Prep – Progress
  • STEM Prep Academy – Progress

With eight traditional schools and four charter schools, it’s a good mix of success stories here in Nashville.

Of particular note:

  • Lockeland Elementary is a Reward School in BOTH possible categories
  • Margaret Allen Middle is an Innovation Cluster school, meaning it has been in turn-around for two years. Since 2011, Margaret Allen increased the number of students proficient or advanced in math nearly three-fold (from 16% to 45.9%)!
