According to a letter received by Superintendent Keith Bryant, the school joins 87 schools Apple is recognizing nationwide as “exemplary learning environments and centers of innovation, leadership and educational excellence.”
The letter goes on to state that Bullard Middle School leaders and faculty exhibited “the five best practices of an Apple Distinguished School,” which are “visionary leadership, innovative learning and teaching, ongoing professional learning, compelling evidence of success and a flexible learning environment.”
Bullard Middle School is expected to receive a plaque during a school board meeting.
“Our education mission is to provide a learning environment that supports the way students live and how they want to learn,” Stephanie Carullo, with Apple, writes in the letter to Bryant. “We applaud schools such as Bullard Middle School who advance this mission, ensuring that all students are prepared for future success in work and life.”
