Humble Middle School was recognized at the Feb. 14 School Board Meeting for being named one of 25 Model Schools in the nation by the International Center for Leadership in Education. Humble Middle was chosen from 152 schools under consideration from across the country.
“We are very proud of Humble Middle School's recent designation as a Model School,” Superintendent Dr. Elizabeth Fagen said. “In a time where there is too much emphasis on what is easy to measure, the Humble Middle School team raised the bar for themselves and became both an AVID Demonstration School and a Model School - two designations that require a more comprehensive and thorough review of a school. The fact that they have set these goals themselves, and accomplished both, speaks volumes about the dedication of the staff and the opportunities they offer our students.”
Humble Middle School will share best practices at the 25th Annual Model Schools Conference, June 25-28, in Nashville. Model Schools are selected annually based on a number of criteria including substantive, data-validated growth year over year; evidence of a strong culture that puts students at the center of learning; and dedication to transforming instruction to meet the needs and demands of the future.
North Belt Elementary School also is a 2017 Model School and was recognized at the January meeting of the Humble ISD Board of Trustees.
