Brookside Elementary was recently announced as one of only 98 schools in the State to be honored as a School of Distinction by the Center for Educational Effectiveness (CEE) and their partner organizations.

Brookside was selected for the prestigious recognition by being in the top five percent of highest improving schools in the State for increased English language arts (ELA) and math achievement.

“This is an incredible and well-deserved honor for the students, staff and families of Brookside Elementary,” said Superintendent Rebecca Miner. 
“Their focus on continuous improvement as learners and educators is an inspiring example of what is possible in public education.”

Now in its 11th year, the School of Distinction Awards were created to recognize the highest improving schools in Washington State. The awards recognize and celebrate school staff, students, and leaders who improve performance for all students over a sustained period of time in English language arts (ELA) and mathematics.

Brookside Elementary and other School of Distinction Award winners from around the region will be recognized at a reception on December 11, 2017 at the Puget Sound ESD in Renton.
