John Sevier Elementary was a 2011 SCORE Prize elementary school finalist. By providing teachers with consistent feedback, using technology to quickly assess how students are performing, and using data to identify to meet school wide challenges and meet student needs, John Sevier was able to narrow the achievement gap while improving achievement levels in math and reading for all of their students. 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 John Sevier’s story of success will inspire you to continue in your own work to prepare our students for success after high school. Please watch this video and read a blog post from John Sevier’s principal to hear about their best practices to improve student achievement in Maryville.
