Middle School Recognized As "Gallup Kids Approved" In Engagement Poll
The Middle School of Plainville has been recognized by the Gallup Education Practice, with a "Gallup Kids Approved" designation.
"We at MSP are particularly proud of this recognition, as it came straight from the students. We continue to work hard to create an engaging and supportive school environment, and to have the students acknowledge that MSP is indeed a "Great Place to Learn" is very rewarding," said Middle School of Plainville Principal, Matthew Guarino.
Students at the Middle School participated in the 2013 administration of the Gallup Student Poll, a national poll measuring student hope for the future, engagement within school, and well-being. The Middle School of Plainville ranked in the top-quartile of engagement scores of all participating schools in the 2013 poll administration. As a result, Gallup will recognize the Middle School with a "Gallup Kids Approved" badge on the "GreatSchools" website. According to information from Gallup, Inc., "GreatSchools is a national nonprofit that helps parents get a great education for their children. Their award-winning website, GreatSchools.org, helps families make crucial decisions about where to live and where to send their children to school. GreatSchools.org is the nation’s leading guide to preK-12 schools, with profiles of 200,000 public and private schools and more than one million ratings and reviews by parents, teachers, and students."
"Fostering school climate and student engagement have been a huge focus for Plainville Community Schools. I am thrilled that our Middle School is being recognized for these efforts," noted Assistant Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Maureen Brummett.
