Teacher Spotlight

Teacher Spotlight usually comes from the observations of the principal or comments of excellence from parents or co-workers, this time is a little different. After the last teacher spotlight was published, a STUDENT asked, "How do you get a teacher on that teacher spotlight?" The student was asked if she had a nomination and the answer was simple, "Well, yeah, Mrs. Brown!" 

Mrs. Brown has had a very challenging year in education. The State adopted new math standards which changed curriculum in the area of math. All four grade levels she teaches have adopted new textbooks and a great deal of math curriculum was pushed down to earlier grades creating gaps. Mrs. Brown has stepped up to the challenge and is working with students to rise to the occasion. 

Mrs. Brown is one of the first teachers to arrive at school every day and one of the last to leave every afternoon. She offers her time through tutorials before school, during break, and after school on a daily basis. Her rapport with students is evident in the respect they show her. Mrs. Brown continuously pushes her students to learn and grow and holds them to high expectations.  

Mrs. Brown is more than a math teacher to our students, she is someone that cares. She asks about and genuinely cares about our students lives. She wants our students to learn outside of the classroom and be productive citizens as well. Today, Mrs. Brown organized a 7th and 8th grade field trip so our students could experience greatness beyond the classroom. Her extra effort and dependability do not go unnoticed by students or co-workers. She continuously goes above and beyond for our school!

Thank you, Mrs. Brown!

Bynum High School Awarded Bronze Award


U.S News & World Report released the 2013 list of Best High Schools on April 23, 2013. This is the second time Bynum High School has been awarded the Bronze Award since the first ever list was posted in November 2007.

 U.S. News & World Report analyzed 21,035 public high schools in 49 states and the District of Columbia. This is the total number of public high schools that had 12th-grade enrollment and sufficient data from the 2010-2011 school year to analyze. (Nebraska was the only state that did not report enough data and therefore was not evaluated for any part of the rankings.)

The U.S. News Best High Schools project identifies the country's top-performing public high schools. The goal is to provide a clear, unbiased picture of how well public schools serve all of their students – from the highest achieving to the lowest achieving – in preparing them to demonstrate proficiency in basic skills as well as readiness for college-level work.

The U.S. News & World Report's editors believe high schools are among America's most important institutions, adding the Best High Schools to its series was a natural progression. Education drives our country's future. Recognizing schools that are performing well and providing them as models to other schools will inspire educators and communities to do better. By sharing this information, parents across the country will be armed with information to help them make better-informed decisions about their child's education.

All public high schools were eligible and nearly all were evaluated in the process of calculating the rankings. The U.S. News Best High Schools methodology collected state test data from state departments of education. The information used to determine rankings can be found online.
