ATLANTA (February 7, 2012) – Sen. John Albers (R-Roswell) presented Crabapple Middle School with a resolution on the Capitol steps last week to recognize them on being named to the Georgia Lighthouse Schools to Watch list.
“It was an honor to recognize students from Crabapple Middle School in the Senate Chamber last week,” said Sen. Albers, “I am proud to have such an upstanding school in my district which prides itself on being a center of academic excellence.”
Students and teachers watched from the Senate Gallery as Sen. Albers recognized Crabapple Middle School on becoming the first middle school in the nation to be named to the Georgia Lighthouse Schools to Watch list for the third time. In addition, Sen. Albers presented Crabapple Middle School with a resolution on the Capitol steps to recognize Crabapple Middle School as one of only 16 middle schools in the State of Georgia to receive this outstanding recognition.
“The opportunity for our eighth graders to be recognized by Senator Albers for the school’s third designation as a Georgia Lighthouse School to Watch was truly an honor,” said Nathan Buhl, Principal at Crabapple Middle School . “As a principal, it is so encouraging to have such strong levels of support from our local and state leaders.”
The Georgia Lighthouse Schools to Watch operates in partnership with the Georgia Middle School Association and is a part of the larger National Forum Schools to Watch program. Since 1999, the national forum has sought to identify the highest performing middle schools from throughout the nation. Lighthouse schools are evaluated by the following criteria: academic excellence, developmental responsiveness, social equity, and organizational structures and processes.
