Mt. Juliet High School has made significant progress in reducing the achievement gap between black and white students. At Mt. Juliet, experienced teachers serve as mentors to incoming faculty, and all teachers collaborate across the curriculum. Principal Mel Brown says that this has allowed the school to raise expectations in the classroom. Mt. Juliet is also committed to mining their student data to identify school, classroom, and student needs. 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.
