Clallam Bay High and Elementary School is celebrating its fourth School of Distinction award since 2007. The current School of Distinction award was received on Nov. 6, 2017, for sustained improvement in English Language Arts and Math over a five-year period.

Clallam Bay High and Elementary School is one of 98 schools so honored by the Center for Educational Effectiveness and their partner organizations that have recognized schools all over the state for continuous and substantive improvement.

Principal Kris Hanson explains that there are many reasons for the success of his K-12 school students. He cites the effective staff at Clallam Bay High and Elementary School as a substantial reason for student academic success.

“We have a dedicated instructional staff that values all students and cares for each individual’s academic success.” Hanson gives exceptional credit to parents for getting their children to school daily, prepared and ready to learn.

Hanson also states that an established and proven progress monitoring system is an important reason why students are successful at Clallam Bay High and Elementary School. Students are held accountable and are tracked individually for state standards and graduation requirements. Students at Clallam Bay High and Elementary School do not go unnoticed and are provided with opportunities that fit their individual needs for success.

Hanson adds; “It takes the efforts of parents, school, and community working together to encourage the educational success of our children.”

Recently, Clallam Bay High and Elementary School demonstrated academic success in spring of 2017 by meeting or exceeding state averages for the Spring Smarter Balanced Assessment in the areas of Math, English Language Arts, and Science. A special recognition is deserved for the fourth and eighth grades where all students passed the test in the following subjects respectively: fourth grade- math, and eighth grade- English Language Arts and Science.

Join us at a celebration for Clallam Bay High and Elementary School at 1:30 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 27, in the high school gymnasium. All are invited and welcome to attend the celebration and awarding of the School of Distinction banner to the school.

Congratulations to Clallam Bay High and Elementary School.
