A+ School of Excellence

"The A+ School of Excellence™ program celebrates outstanding schools throughout Arizona and calls attention to the positive stories and successes occurring in public schools," explains Bobbie O'Boyle, AEF executive director. "We applaud these schools for going above and beyond the norm to meet their students' needs and for achieving overall success despite the many challenges that face the education community statewide."

Since 1983, the foundation has honored A+ Schools of Excellence™ to give recognition to remarkable Arizona public schools. Schools submit applications that document demographic information, current programs and practices, parent and community involvement, the school's leadership and commitment to excellence, equity, service and high achievement.

To earn an A+ award, schools must show high achievement or significant improvement. Top schools identify and meet the academic and non-academic needs of their students. A panel that includes award-winning principals, teachers and community leaders selects A+ Schools of Excellence™ after conducting site visits throughout the state.

Each of this year's 39 award-winning schools receives $500 and an A+ School of Excellence™ banner. All staff and faculty at winning schools are eligible for partial scholarships from Argosy University, Phoenix. Schools hold their A+ title for three and a half years. Mesa currently has 27 A+ Schools of Excellence™.
