In its 12th year, the Schools of Distinction program is recognizing 91 schools for 2018. The winners represent 51 elementary, 20 middle/junior high, and 20 high schools. The schools span all regions of the state, from large urban to small rural communities and represent all nine Educational Service Districts (ESDs). 

“It’s great to see so many districts with Schools of Distinction,” said Tim Garchow, executive director of the Washington State School Directors’ Association (WSSDA). “To show sustained improvement for five consecutive years is a tremendous accomplishment. I think these awards reflect the quality and vitality of public education throughout Washington state.” 

The Center for Educational Effectiveness (CEE) in partnership with WSSDA, the Association of Educational Service Districts (AESD), Association of Washington School Principals (AWSP), Washington Association of School Administrators (WASA), and the Washington State Association of Supervision and Curriculum Development (WSASCD) have recognized schools in the top 5% of improvement for their levels. Elementary and middle schools are recognized for sustained improvement in ELA and math achievement. High schools are recognized for sustained improvement in graduation rate over the past five years. 

The list of winners for 2018, the program’s methodology and more are available at CEE’s Schools of Distinction page.
