West Point Public Schools was the only school division in the Commonwealth to earn a Virginia Board of Education Excellence Award, as announced by Governor Ralph Northam and the state Board of Education on May 29. West Point Elementary School also earned the Education Excellence Award, and West Point Middle School and West Point High School both earned Board of Education Distinguished Achievement Awards.

“I am delighted to recognize the Virginia students and faculty at all of these schools for their academic excellence and commitment to innovation and continued improvement,” said Governor Northam. “The schools and school divisions that have earned these awards are not only the highest-performing schools in our Commonwealth but are among the best schools in the nation.”

The Virginia Index of Performance (VIP) awards are based on performance on state and federal accountability benchmarks and progress made toward goals for increased student achievement and expanded educational opportunities set by the board.

“While the Board of Education rightly focuses much of its attention on supporting schools that are still working toward meeting state standards, it is important to celebrate the successes of schools that far exceed these benchmarks,” said Board of Education President Daniel A. Gecker. “Recognizing exemplary schools provides an incentive for improvement beyond the performance levels required for state accreditation.”

“As a former teacher, I know how important it is to commend extra effort and improved performance,” said Secretary of Education Atif Qarni. “I believe the same is true for schools and school divisions and I look forward to personally congratulating many of these schools and divisions during my travels around the Commonwealth.”

 “The teachers, principals, superintendents, administrators and support staff of these award-winning schools and divisions share a commitment to deeper learning, expanding opportunity and preparing all students for success,” said Superintendent of Public Instruction James Lane. “I look forward to visiting as many of these learning communities as possible during the coming months to offer my personal congratulations for their outstanding work preparing young Virginians for what comes next.”


WPHS students Zachary Gonzalez, Carrinton Hodge, MacKenzie Hilton, Amber Lee, Charlotte Robbins and Cassie Small have been chosen to attend the YADAPP (Youth Alcohol and Drug Abuse Prevention Project) State Conference in July. YADAPP is for high school students who are leaders in their school or community and are interested in preventing substance use among their peers.
