WPPS Celebrates Highest SOL Pass Rates
WPPS Earns 2015 Highly Distinguished Title I School Division Distinction
One of only two school divisions in the Commonwealth of Virginia
We are pleased that West Point Public Schools has been recognized by the Virginia Board of Education as one of only two school divisions in the state to receive the Highly Distinguished Title I School Division designation. This recognition demonstrates the ongoing commitment of staff, parents, students and community members to the academic success of all students.
Although the Standards of Learning and the assessments are far more rigorous, we are pleased that our students continue to achieve at these higher levels. As a school division, we have developed an evidence-based instructional model that challenges and supports students in meeting and exceeding high academic standards and expectations equally matched by exceptional instructional delivery.
This is the third consecutive year West Point Public Schools has earned this prestigious honor.
National Blue Ribbon Award
It is my pleasure to inform members of
the West Point Pointer Family that West Point High School received
notification that the school is the recipient of the National Blue
Ribbon Award. The U.S. Secretary of Education, Arne Duncan, announced
the 2012 National Blue Ribbon Schools. The National Blue Ribbon School
program recognizes public and private schools for outstanding student
achievement. The program is designed to highlight best practices in
educational leadership and teaching. The Virginia Department of
Education nominated West Point High School as one of only two high
schools in Virginia for the 2012 award. West Point High School was one
of only 269 schools to receive this award, out of more than 100,000 U.S.
schools. Since 1982, the U.S. Department of Education has sought
schools in which students meet and/or exceed rigorous academic
achievement goals. The National Blue Ribbon Award is the result of
exemplary student achievement and the hard work of a dedicated and
talented staff. This is a return on our community's investment in the
students of West Point Public Schools and the emphasis placed on a
quality education for all students.
Please join the West Point School Board
and me as we offer congratulations to members of the West Point High
School on receiving this prestigious honor.
