for Overall Excellence,
High Progress &
English Language Arts Growth
The Washington State Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction has again recognized Nooksack Elementary as one of the State’s top performing schools by awarding them with the 2015 Washington Achievement Award. Nooksack Elementary also won this award in 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010, and 2009. In addition, we received the 2015 Title 1 Distinguished School Award, the School of Distinction Award in 2008, and the National Blue Ribbon School Award in 2005.
Nooksack Elementary won in the overall excellence category which is awarded to schools whose two-year average put them in the top five percent of schools across the state. We also received special recognition for High Progress and English Language Arts Growth in 2015. Schools were selected based on their statewide assessment data for the three previous years.
The awards are part of the Washington State Board of Education’s accountability program. Under the program, all schools are indexed according to outcomes and indicators. The four elementary outcomes are student performance on statewide reading, writing, math, and science assessments.
We are very proud of our staff, students and
community who have worked and continue to work
so hard to ensure the success of each student.
