2014 WASHINGTON ACHIEVEMENT AWARD
April 20, 2015
  
Dear Center School Staff and Families:
 
I am happy to report that The Center School is a recipient of the 2014 Washington Achievement Award
 
The Center School is being honored for the category of 1) Overall Excellence and 2) Reading Growth.
 
This is an extraordinary accomplishment and is a direct reflection of the hard work of our students, the dedication of our teachers, and the support and guidance of our parents. Center School’s award is well deserved, congratulations!
 
The Washington Achievement Awards are sponsored by the Washington State Board of Education and the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction. They celebrate Washington’s top-performing schools and recognize achievement in many categories. This highly-selective award is based on our school’s performance on the Washington State Achievement Index.
 
The Washington Achievement Award is given in six categories: overall excellence, high progress, reading, math, science, extended graduation rate (high and comprehensive schools only) and English language acquisition.
               
I hope you will visit the OSPI Washington Achievement awards site to learn more about the awards and the criteria for selection.
 
The selection process for the Washington Achievement Award is very rigorous, and all of us take great pride in this accomplishment.
 
 
 
Sincerely,
 
 
Oksana Britsova,
TCS Principal
