Sunset Ridge Elementary has received Level 1 Certification from Marzano Academies, the first of five steps in earning designation as a High Reliability School. A High Reliability rating is the “gold standard” for a competency based school.
To receive designation as a Level One school, an overwhelming percentage of staff, students and parents must agree that the school provides a safe, supportive and collaborative culture. A basic premise of the Marzano Academies framework is that children cannot learn to their full potential if they don’t feel comfortable in their school.
Among the findings at Sunset Ridge:
- 100% of teachers and staff agreed that Sunset Ridge is a safe school.
- 88% of parents responded that Sunset Ridge has clear and specific rules in place to keep the school safe and orderly.
- 98% of students agreed that they know the safety rules at Sunset Ridge and believe their school is an orderly place.
