  What's New

"Schools to Watch" is an initiative launched by the National Forum to Accelerate Middle-Grades Reform in 1999. Four schools were originally identified and the school tours of Freeport Intermediate School, Barren County Middle School, Jefferson Middle School and Thurgood Marshall Middle School can be accessed at our virtual school tour.

STW now is a state-by-state program. Through the state Schools to Watch initiative, schools are identified across the United States that are well on their way to meeting the criteria for high performance. Three things are true of STW, high-performing middle-grades schools:

  • They are academically excellent—these schools challenge all students to use their minds well.
  • They are developmentally responsive—these schools are sensitive to the unique developmental challenges of early adolescence.
  • They are socially equitable—these schools are democratic and fair, providing every student with high-quality teachers, resources, and supports.
  • To achieve this level of performance, high-performing schools establish norms, structures, and organizational arrangements to support and sustain their trajectory toward excellence. They have a sense of purpose that drives every facet of practice and decision-making.

    Each year the National Forum invites state middle-grades associations, state departments of education, post-secondary institutions, and other collaborating organizations to join in expanding the STW program through a state application process. States have the opportunity to participate in a unique professional learning opportunity and identify middle-grades schools that are on a solid upward trajectory. Current STW states are Arkansas, California, Colorado, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Utah and Virginia. Over 87 schools have been identified through 2006.
