Albuquerque, NM – The GRAD Partnership is pleased to announce its first spotlight school, Manzano High School in Albuquerque, New Mexico, for its positive engagement and student success it had from the implementation of its continuous improvement systems.
During the 2021-22 school year, staff members at Manzano High School earned certification as Early Warning Systems Coordinators from the Everyone Graduates Center at Johns Hopkins School of Education. It was during the certification process that Manzano High School was identified by Talent Development Secondary as an exemplary site for designing an Early Warning System based on engagement and level of implementation during the project as well as positive impacts on student outcomes.
“Given the work that Manzano has undertaken during their pilot year, we are pleased to name Manzano High School as our first GRAD Partnership Spotlight School,” Patricia Balana, the Managing Director of the GRAD Partnership. During a recent visit to Manzano High School, Balana reflected, “it was an uplifting experience for our team. We were honored to witness the work firsthand and delighted to meet with students, educators, and community groups, all clearly working together and so creatively in pursuit of student success.”
Manzano High School will be a connection point for other GRAD Partnership schools across the nation as they create a national movement that taps into the power of predictive data, personalized support, and evidence-based practices to meet the needs of every student and empower them to graduate ready for the future.
