Robert Marzano is one of the most respected educators in the country and entered into a unique partnership with Westminster Public Schools and Principal Brian Kosena to open and oversee a Marzano Academy. Marzano is a regular visitor to the school, meeting with Kosena and the staff to create the High Reliability framework.

The Academy serves as a model for other schools in the district working to achieve High Reliability status. Just this week, Sunset Ridge Elementary received certification as a Level One School, meaning it has successfully created a safe, supportive and collaborative culture.
