Rochester Prep West Campus has been identified by the New York State Education Department as a 2018-19 Recognition School, one of only four K-8 schools outside of New York City to achieve the distinction. Under the state’s Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), schools identified as “Recognition Schools” have high academic achievement, student growth and graduation rates, and have made progress during the 2017-18 school year.
“We are extremely proud of this recognition which is reflective of the hard work our students put into learning every single day and the incredible efforts and talents of our teachers, staff, and school leaders,” said Paul Powell, Assistant Superintendent of Rochester Prep. “This is further proof that our students are on track to get to and through college.”
Update July 20: Uncommon Schools Williamsburg Collegiate Charter School in Brooklyn was also identified as a Recognition School.
