Give a round of applause to this year's winner and runner up in the Kathryn C. Mitchell Spelling Bee.
The Bee was held last week and Jeremy G. of DuPont Hadley Middle School came out on top. Christine L. from Meigs Middle Magnet followed closely behind as runner-up.
When it comes to growth from year to year, Meigs is number one!
The magnet middle school was recently named the top performer in all of Tennessee when looking at growth in testing scores over a three-year period. The Education Consumers Foundation has been analyzing TVAAS data in its 'Tennessee Project' to find out just how effective our schools are.
As parent David Kern said, "This speaks volumes about the hard-working teachers at Meigs and even more about the strong leadership."
Congratulations to the students, faculty, and families at Meigs!
