Montessori Magnet Program, 2013 Merit School of Excellence
The Montessori Magnet Program at Sunrise Middle School has been awarded the 2013 Merit School of Excellence award by Magnet Schools of America (MSA). This prestigious award recognizes the high standards of education and excellence provided to our students by our hardworking staff, the uniqueness of Montessori philosophy and the effort of volunteer parents and community members, as indicated in the Magnet Schools of America website at http://magnet.edu/
The Magnet Schools of Merit Award recognizes member magnet schools/programs that demonstrate a high commitment to academic standards, curriculum innovation, desegregation/diversity efforts, specialized teaching staffs, and parent and community involvement.
There are two categories of awards: (1) Magnet Schools of Excellence, the top category, is awarded to a group of select magnet schools, and (2) Magnet Schools of Distinction, the second highest award of recognition. Member schools submit an application that is scored by a panel of educators, with specific cash awards provided to the top Magnet Schools of Excellence.
Congratulations to all!
