Discovery School and Overall Creek Elementary received the Tennessee award school designation, with Erma Siegel Elementary missing the designation by simple fractions of a point. Award status is the main honor a school can earn in Tennessee.
The annual award school designation identifies schools that improve overall student academic achievement and student growth for all students and for groups of students. This is the fifth year in a row that the state has awarded the Reward School distinction to Discovery School and the second year in a row to Overall Creek. About 20% of the state’s schools have achieved award status historically.
“I think this designation is a direct response to the emphasis placed on student learning by our teachers and administrators,” says Dr Trey Duke, school principal for the town of Murfreesboro. “We congratulate the staff and students of Discovery and Overall on receiving this designation. ”
Murfreesboro City School teachers and support staff constantly review the needs of each student in their care and continue to focus on serving the child as a whole.
Murfreesboro City Schools is a school district proud of its thirteen schools and over 9,400 students.
