This is the image for the news article titled Ana Grace Recognized for "Effective Teaching in Every Classroom" National recognition of Ana Grace Arts Middle School's program continues to grow.  We are pleased to announce that our program has been certified as a Marzano High Reliability School for a second time this year.  After receiving recognition for creating a "Safe, Supportive, and Collaborative Culture" in June, we have now been awarded a Level 2 distinction for maintaining "Effective Teaching in Every Classroom".

High quality instruction is the most important tool educators have at their disposal to positively affect student learning. This certification is given for, "developing teacher effectiveness in every classroom by building a shared language of instruction and using this common language to raise the level of pedagogical skill both individually and collectively."

The high reliability school (HRS) program was created by Marzano Resources, a leading Educational Resource Company, to help transform schools into organizations that take proactive steps to ensure student success. Using a research-based five-level hierarchy, along with leading and lagging indicators, educators learn to assess, monitor, and confirm the effectiveness of their schools. This framework, based on 50 years of educational research, defines five progressive levels of performance that a school must master to become an HRS—where all students learn the content and skills they need for success in college, careers, and beyond.
