I am proud to announce that The True Adventures of a High School Librarian RETURNS for the 2015-2016 school year!
Starting in August 2015 I will begin a new adventure working at the amazing, innovative, forward thinking, technology driven James Clemens High School in Madison, AL.
While this decision breaks my heart because it will take me away from the wonderful teachers and students at Elkmont High School that I have fallen in love with over the past year, I feel blessed beyond belief that this door has been opened. The potential for professional growth is great and I can't wait to be a part of the JCHS Family!
Super proud of my new school! Read about it below or click HERE.
3 Tennessee Valley schools make Washington Post's 'Top 10 Most Challenging Schools in Alabama' list
Madison City was the only school district in Alabama to have more than one school in the top 10 of Alabama Schools. James Clemens placed third and Bob Jones ninth in Alabama.
Several of the top 10 Alabama schools, including number one Jefferson County IB and number two Loveless Academic Magnet Program in Montgomery, are magnet schools.
Buckhorn High School was the only other North Alabama high school in the state's top 10.
Nationally, James Clemens was 651 on the list and Bob Jones was 1,116 on the list of the 2,327 high schools in the Most Challenging High Schools rankings. That list is out of 30,000 public and private high schools nationwide.
The list is based on the number of college-level tests given at a school in the previous calendar year and the number of graduates that year.
Another factor is the percentage of graduates who passed at least one college-level test during their high school career, called equity and excellence, (E&E).
