R.A. Long High School and Monticello Middle School named “Schools of Distinction”

The Center for Educational Effectiveness (CEE) announced 91 school across Washington State were named 2018 “Schools of Distinction”. Included in the list were four-time winner R. A. Long High School and first-time winner Monticello Middle School.

Being named a school of distinction is a prestigious award recognizing sustained improvement over a five-year period in English, math or graduation rate. Being recognized as a school of distinction means being in the top 5 percent of improvement for their levels.

Middle schools are judged based on improvement in math and English over a five-year period. Monticello Middle School has shown outstanding growth, especially in math. Superintendent Dan Zorn said, “The effort and results of Principal Scott Merzoian and his dedicated group of teachers and support staff has been fantastic.”

R. A. Long High School was recognized as a “School of Distinction” for the fourth time. High schools are graded on their graduation rate. R. A. Long’s preliminary 2018 graduation rate is 96 percent, which is one of the highest graduation rates in the state. “Principal Rich Reeves and his team do amazing work every day,” Superintendent Zorn said.

Overall only five schools in the greater Southwest region of Washington State received School of Distinction awards, with two of those being from the Longview Public School system.
