Woodmont High School has been named a 2022 Model School for their focus on relationships and rigorous and relevant academics to impact student growth. According to the International Center for Leadership in Education (ICLE), the educators at Woodmont recognize opportunities for collaboration, have built a strong culture, and maintain high expectations for all students.
Woodmont High School is one of 16 Model Schools from across the United States that will share its best practices at ICLE’s 30th Annual Model Schools Conference in Orlando this summer. The event provides a forum for thousands of passionate teachers and leaders to share replicable and creative strategies that can be implemented in any school.
“Model Schools are passionate about kids. The educators at Model Schools are relentless about creating effective learning environments to benefit the students and the communities they serve,” says Dr. Linda Lucey, Program Chair and ICLE Associate Partner. “Each of the 2022 Model Schools are proud to share their stories of perseverance and strategies for others to take away and make their own.”
By resetting expectations, breaking from excuses, and sometime just revisiting- or reinterpreting- the rule book, Woodmont High School has applied practices that improve variables ranging from academics, to graduation rate, to school culture and community perception.
