An eighth grade math teacher said the best part of South Cumberland Elementary School is that everyone works together to do the best for students—since they’re our future. At her school, teachers use data to inform instruction and the principal works directly with students on their math skills. These efforts have helped South Cumberland’s students be successful, which is why the school was a middle school finalist for the 2011 SCORE Prize. 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 South Cumberland’s story of success will inspire you to continue in your own work to prepare students for success after high school. Please watch this to hear about their best practices to improve student achievement in Cumberland County.
