Focusing on all students having the chance to be successful, Fairview Elementary School was the elementary winner of the 2011 SCORE Prize. With an emphasis on data and assessment, Fairview uses a data wall to display student success. At this school, students don’t just take standardized tests; teachers also use formative assessments to keep track of how their students are doing. From good communication to collaboration, students are given the attention and supports they need. This is enabled Fairview’s students to improve faster than most of their peers throughout the state. On Monday, October 8, SCORE will award the second annual SCORE Prize at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. Please click here to reserve your free tickets to the event.

We hope that Fairview’s story of success will inspire you to continue in your own work to prepare students for success after high school. Please watch this video and read a blog post from Fairview’s principal to hear about their best practices to improve student achievement.
