2013 NCUST National Excellence in Urban Education Gold Award Winners Announced
Dayton Business Technology High School, Granger Junior High, Mac Arthur High School, and Synergy Charter Academy are the winners of the 2013 Gold Award for Excellence in Urban Education from NCUST. The awards were announced May 23rd in Houston during a special ceremony at the NCUST Symposium.
Congratulations to all 16 schools selected as winners of the 2013 NCUST National Excellence in Urban Education Awards. Among the thousands of urban schools in the nation, the winners represent the few that met all of our rigorous eligibility criteria and demonstrated through achievement test scores and other indicators that their schools achieve impressive academic results for every demographic group. After conducting intensive site visits our team had the incredibly difficult task of determining which finalist schools presented the greatest evidence of strength in four areas: curricular rigor, instructional effectiveness, relational quality, and continuous improvement efforts.
