Sarah Moore Greene Magnet Academy was recognized in September as a “School of Promise” by the National Institute for Excellence in Teaching. This designation, which includes a $5,000 award, recognizes early success in implementing NIET initiatives to improve teaching and learning.
Sarah Moore Greene partnered with NIET in 2018 to help establish a common language and goals and receive coaching targeted to specific teacher and student needs. After consecutive years of level 1 student achievement growth, the school earned level 5 in 2019, the highest growth rating possible in the state. While testing was suspended this spring, NIET said it continued to see Sarah Moore Greene model a spirit of collaboration and innovation through the COVID-19 transition.
Congratulations to Principal Robin Curry and the entire SMG community for this recognition!
