Pleasant Hills Middle School named a 'School to Watch'
Pleasant Hills Middle School has been named a Pennsylvania Don Eichorn School to Watch as part of the recognition program developed by the National Forum to Accelerate Middle Grades Reform.
The school will be recognized at the Pennsylvania Association for Middle Level Education Conference at the Penn State Conference Center in State College on Feb. 25. The school also will be honored, along with other schools across the country given the honor in Washington, D.C. at the National Forum's National Schools to Watch Conference, slated for June 28 to 30.
Schools are selected based on a written application that explains how they met criteria. Schools making the cut were observed and interviews with school staff, parents and students were conducted. Student data also was a component.
Schools must go through the process every three years to be re-designated.
