PPCMS-West Wins Award from Florida Department of Education
PPCMS-W does it again! National Blue Ribbon and School of Excellence has been our past passion.On Tuesday, April 1, 2014, it was no April Fool’s joke! Dr. Michael Olson, a representative from the Florida Department of Education School Of Choice Office presented Ms. Flowers, Mr. Castellano and our leadership team an award for being chosen the top three out of 144 schools as an exemplar school. This means that our teaching and learning is above and beyond – so much so that the Department of Education would like to tape some of our classes and showcase it to the entire state on how to implement the Florida State Standards! The other two schools that will be a part of this are the Aventura City of Excellence and the Tallahassee School of Arts and Sciences. When asked why our school was chosen, Dr. Olson said immediately, “Student engagement. It is clear that students express themselves and are participating in class.” Thanks, Dr. Olson, and expect to see a professional television crew on our campus in May 2014 so that we can share what we know!
