We have just received word that Downtown Montessori Academy has earned a Wisconsin Title I High-Progress School Award! This award recognizes student academic achievement and academic progress. A total of 65 schools statewide received a High-Achieving and/or High-Progress Award, only 5 of these schools were charter schools. DMA is proud to be among the highest achieving Title I schools in the state.
To earn this award certain criteria needed to be met, among those:
- We have achieved a rating of “Exceeds Expectations” on our Wisconsin School Report Card
- We have fallen within the top 10 percent of Title I schools experiencing student growth in reading and mathematics
- We have minimal achievement gaps or have shown evidence of reducing gaps between student subgroups
- We have met all test participation, absenteeism, and dropout goals
Thank you and congratulations to all our teachers, staff and parents.
