MRH High School Selected as a National “Model School”
The MRH High School has been selected as a national “Model School” and will present at the prestigious Model Schools Conference in Kissimmee, Florida June 24-June 27, 2012. The Model Schools Conference is part of the International Center for Leadership in Education and showcases the nation’s best practices for improving student achievement and creating growth.
Schools chosen as a “Model School” will describe their success practices around transitioning to more rigorous and relevant standards and assessments (such as common core state standards and next generation assessments), and teacher evaluation. MRH High School Principal Kevin Grawer will present “Community Involvement and Continuous Improvement: A 10-Year Plan for Success.”
The Model Schools Conference describes the MRH High School session as: "In a remarkable 10-year journey, Maplewood Richmond Heights High School transformed from one of the worst high schools in the St. Louis area—likely facing state takeover—to a showcase of high academic standards and social responsibility. Join us as we examine the culture and programs that fed this amazing transformation. At the heart of these changes has been a deep commitment to four cornerstones: leadership, scholarship, stewardship, and citizenship. Students integrate intense experiences in these areas along with sophisticated technology as they prepare for life after high school.”
