A Supportive Community Produces Outstanding Learners
Union Middle School, San Jose, Calif.
Whole child partner National Forum to Accelerate Middle Grades Reform has named Union Middle School as one of its 2013 California Schools to Watch. This suburban school—located in San Jose, California—is most noteworthy for being ranked in the top 10 percent of state middle schools, due in part to its success in collaborative education efforts that provide student support. The commitment to excellence is also reflected in Union’s Academic Performance Index (API) score, which is nearly perfect by California state standards.
