WHAT ARE SCHOOLS TO WATCH?

 
     "Schools to Watch" is an initiative launched by the National Forum to Accelerate Middle-Grades Reform in 1999. The National Forum is an alliance of more than 60 educators, researchers, and officers of national associations and foundations dedicated to improving schools for young adolescents across the country. Schools to Watch are:

     - academically excellent – these schools challenge all students to use their minds well. 
 - developmentally responsive – these schools are sensitive to the unique developmental challenges of early adolescence. 
  - socially equitable – these schools are democratic and fair, providing every student with high-quality teachers, resources, and supports.

 
     To achieve this level of performance, high-performing schools establish norms, structures, and organizational arrangements to support and sustain their trajectory toward excellence. They have a sense of purpose that drives every facet of practice and decision-making.
