SPRING VALLEY--State Superintendent Tony Evers commended Spring Valley Middle School as one of 83 middle schools named an Exemplary Middle School in Wisconsin based on student academic achievement.

"Middle school is a pivotal time for our students. They need a school environment that nourishes their phenomenal intellectual capacity while supporting their emotional growth and increasing independence," Evers said. "Recognizing schools that have demonstrated success with students helps build strong academic expectations at the middle level."

The Exemplary Middle School program, sponsored by the Association of Wisconsin School Administrators (AWSA) and Department of Public Instruction, is in its third year. The program recognizes middle schools with high growth in reading or math scores in the past school year; reading or math scores in the top 10 percent in the past year; or high growth in scores in reading or math for schools with a high poverty population.
