Tennessee has transformed its education system over the past few years. With a foundation of student-focused changes – higher standards, great teaching, strong leadership, and data-driven instruction – Tennessee has set the goal of preparing every student to graduate from high school ready for college and career. To help all Tennessee schools and districts rise to the challenge of that goal, the SCORE Prize highlights the places that are raising student academic achievement and shares their strategies of success throughout the state.
The SCORE Prize is awarded annually to the Tennessee elementary school, middle school, high school, and school district that are leading the way in student learning. The prize recognizes that these schools and districts are doing the hard work of improving student achievement and preparing all students for success after high school.
