READING, OH (FOX19) -

Reading Middle School is being recognized as an 'Ohio school to watch' as well as a 'nationally recognized school to watch'.

Schools that receive this honor are selected by a committee of teachers and administrators from around the buckeye state.

Criteria for the designation include:

  • Academic Excellence - the school is excellent and challenges all students
  • Social Equity - the school is socially equitable and fair
  • Developmental Responsiveness - the school is sensitive to the unique developmental challenges of early adolescence
  • Organizational Structures and Processes - the organization has established norms, structures and arrangements to support and sustain excellence

Reading Middle School is now one of only 24 Ohio middle schools to earn this distinction in the last eight years and is one of 325 middle schools nationwide to have earned this honor.

RMS Principal Bob Longworth gave credit to his staff for their commitment and dedication to Reading students.  "Our dedicated staff has worked hard to find ways to engage and support our students personally and academically and the positive results have been tremendous," he shared. "Without the support from our parents and the community, our success would not be possible."

The principal also said there is no prize money or endowment that comes with the honor, but believes the recognition will open the school up to more funding when applying for grants in the future.

The school will be recognized on the State level on February 22 in Sandusky, Ohio. Nationally, Reading Middle School will be recognized in Washington D.C. in June.
