In our introductory What’s Right in Education blog we highlighted two of our Turnaround School partners Montclair Elementary School and Oakcrest Elementary School in the Escambia County School District in Pensacola, Florida. Both schools achieved great success in 2010-11! They moved from low performing schools as graded by the state of Florida to schools that achieved an “A” school grade.
Oakcrest’s Garden program is also award winning! In 2011, it won 2nd place in the State of Florida School Garden Competition. Check out a few pictures and see more on their website. Congratulations to 5th grade science teacher Mr. Herber, family and community liaison Mrs. South, and all of the Oakcrest Eagles who have worked all year to learn how to plant and grow a variety of vegetables.
