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%)!
