Murfreesboro City Schools received the designation of an “Exemplary” school district by the State of Tennessee today. This designation is given annually by the Department of Education.
Education Commissioner Candice McQueen also announced the 2016-17 Reward Schools including two Murfreesboro City Schools. Scales Elementary and Discovery School were honored for scores in the top five percent of schools in Tennessee for performance.
“Murfreesboro City sees each individual child, and teaches that child skill by skill while recognizing that children are more than test scores. We are elated at the Exemplary district status,” says Linda Gilbert, Director of Schools. “Certainly, we are very proud of Discovery and Scales for receiving Reward School status. These designations are the direct results of an intentional focus on student learning by the entire Murfreesboro City Schools family.”
MCS teachers and support staff have persevered in looking at the needs of individual students under their care and are concentrating on serving the whole child.
“The news affirms the leadership of the School Board, dedication of school employees, partnerships with parents, and support of the community,” says Gilbert.
Murfreesboro City Schools is a district committed to the academic and personal success of each child.
