WPPS Earns 2014 Highly Distinguished Title I School Division Distinction
One of only two school divisions in the Commonwealth of Virginia
We are pleased that West Point Public Schools has been recognized by the Virginia Board of Education as one of only two school divisions in the state to receive the Highly Distinguished Title I School Division designation. This recognition demonstrates the ongoing commitment of staff, parents, students and community members to the academic success of all students.
Although the Standards of Learning and the assessments are far more rigorous, we are pleased that our students continue to achieve at these higher levels. As a school division, we have developed an evidence-based instructional model that challenges and supports students in meeting and exceeding high academic standards and expectations equally matched by exceptional instructional delivery.
This is the second consecutive year West Point Public Schools has earned this prestigious honor.
National Blue Ribbon Award
is my pleasure to inform members of the Pointer Family that West Point
High School received notification that the school is the recipient of
the National Blue Ribbon Award. U.S. Secretary of Education, Arne
Duncan, announced the 2012 National Blue Ribbon Schools. The National
Blue Ribbon School program recognizes public and private schools for
outstanding student achievement. The program is designed to highlight
best practices in educational leadership and teaching. The Virginia
Department of Education nominated West Point High School as one of only
two high schools in Virginia for the 2012 award. West Point High School
was one of only 269 schools to receive this award, out of more than
100,000 U.S. schools. Since 1982, the U.S. Department of Education has
sought schools in which students meet and/or exceed rigorous academic
achievement goals. The National Blue Ribbon Award is the result of
exemplary student achievement and the hard work of a dedicated and
talented staff. This is a return on our community's investment in the
students of West Point Public Schools and the emphasis placed on a
quality education for all students.
