Both Memorial High School and Westchester Academy for International Studies were recently named a 2020-2022 National PTA School of Excellence. National PTA’s School of Excellence program supports and celebrates partnerships between PTAs and schools that work to improve the educational experience and school environment for every child. As a National PTA School of Excellence, at Memorial and Westchester, families feel welcomed and empowered to support student success, and PTA is a key partner for continuous school improvement. The School of Excellence program provided guidance to assist our school in engaging families in school decision-making, and help our school build inclusive policies related to education, health, safety or the arts.
Becoming a National PTA School of Excellence begins with the joint commitment of PTA and our phenomenal administrative team to work together to welcome all families, communicate effectively, support student success, speak up for every child, share power and collaborate with the community. These schools have successfully mastered these commitments and we applaud everyone for doing so.
Thank you for your commitment to our district and community!
