Sandy Grade educators celebrated with Blizzard treats when they heard about their latest award.
The International Center for Leadership in Education has named Sandy Grade School a 2019 Model School for its dramatic improvements in student learning and achievement.
Sandy Grade is one of seven elementary schools, among a total of 18 K-12 Model Schools from across the United States.
Over the past four years, Sandy Grade has moved from being one of the lowest performing elementary schools in Oregon (bottom 10%) to now performing in the top 20% and having one of the highest growth rates in Oregon.
Sandy Grade was honored in 2016 with Oregon’s Whole Child award that recognizes schools that provide healthy, safe, engaging, supported, and challenging learning environment for all students.
