Engagement in their communities is an important core value to Excellence in Education honorees.Participating in service projects, cut-a-thons, fashion shows and other initiatives isn’t an option for students; it’s a requirement. But it’s one they love to fulfill as owners strive to offer a variety of opportunities every month for students to choose from.
Excellence in Education honorees are leading the way in utilizing technology to teach.Owners are embracing other high-tech trends in equipment, apps and software as well. Students have come to expect cutting-edge technology in the classroom, and schools are continually stepping up to incorporate new trends, including paperless classrooms.
Savvy school owners realize the importance of culture in schools and are spending just as much time nurturing this as they are on practical business matters.
