REALMS Earns Rare EL Distinction

What Honor Means for School

Article Date: Dec 12, 2016

Huge congratulations are in order for REALMS and the school's staff, students and community!

In November of this year REALMS Magnet School was recognized with a national credential for exceeding the EL Education standards of student achievement, which measure three dimensions of student achievement: academic performance, high-quality work, and positive character.

Over the past year and a half the staff at REALMS have been compiling an electronic portfolio of evidence demonstrating excellence in student outcomes linked to progressive teaching practices. You can view the school's digital portfolio here.

The Bulletin also published an article about the EL process.

(We like the part about the school being a place "full of rigor and joy.")

Way to go REALMS!
