Tahoma Senior High School will receive the 2014 Washington Achievement Award, state Superintendent Randy Dorn and state Board of Education Chair Isabel Muñoz announced Tuesday.
“Winning the Washington Achievement Award for three consecutive years is a true honor for our entire Tahoma community,” THS Principal Terry Duty said. “Having families dedicated to the education of their children, bright, hard-working students and educators from kindergarten through 12th grade committed to student success make a magical blend to place Tahoma High School in a class of elite schools across our state and nation.”
Washington Achievement Award winners are selected using the State Board of Education Revised Achievement Index and are based on statewide assessment data for the three previous years. The awards are given in six categories: overall excellence, high progress, reading growth, math growth, extended graduation rate and English language acquisition.
Tahoma is being recognized as one of the highest-performing schools in the state for overall excellence and reading growth. This year’s list of winners includes 401 schools.
“Honoring successful schools is one of the most important things we do,” Dorn said. “We know schools are doing great work and are getting better at serving all students every day. We may not be where we want to be, but we are making progress. These awards celebrate both achievement and growth.”
The awards will be officially distributed at a ceremony later this month. For more information, click here: http://www.k12.wa.us/EducationAwards/WashingtonAchievement/
