Here at Getting Smart, we believe school visits are the best form of professional learning. Based on a couple thousand school visits, and with help from colleagues and readers, we’ve compiled a list of elementary and middle schools that can give educators a better sense of what’s possible. This list includes schools that achieve extraordinary results for underserved communities, create powerful learning experiences, and/or have innovative school models.
27. Shamrock Gardens Elementary is one of 40 Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools in the Success by Design initiative (supported by Opportunity Culture) that uses new staffing strategies to leverage teacher talent. Success by Design is a key talent development and retention strategy for CMS and it enables schools to meet or exceed School Improvement Plan goals.
