Brandon Middle School Is Exemplary
Brandon Middle School is recognized by the Association of Wisconsin School Administrators as an Exemplary Middle School.
The Association of Wisconsin School Administrators represents principals throughout the state at each level of K-12 education.
The association started the award program this year because officials wanted to find a way to recognize middle schools, which often are overlooked, being sandwiched between elementary schools and high schools.
"Organizers wanted to recognize schools that improved test scores in subjects like reading and math," said Tina Hogle, the Association's assistant director. There were 363 schools eligible for the award.
"It's time that middles schools get some recognition for the good work that they're doing," Hogle said. "One of the things we're hoping, by recognizing the good things going on it these schools, is that we'll be able to kind of tap into the practices taking place in those schools and share the information across the state."
The award criteria are: high growth in WKCE reading and/or math scores in the past school year, WKCE reading and/or math scores in the top 10% in the past year, and high growth in WKCE scores in reading and/or math for schools comprised of a particular population.
Congratulations to the students and staff at Brandon Middle School for this outstanding accomplishment!
