Southeast Middle School

Southeast Middle School is committed to working together to challenge our potential as a Future Focus school, to nurture responsibility, to embrace diversity, and to model life-long learning in a safe and orderly school.

Southeast Middle School has once again been honored with the School to Watch Award. In 2007, Southeast was one of eight schools in North Carolina and one of a 100 middle schools in the United States to be selected as a School to Watch. During the 2009-10 school year, we were again designated as a School to Watch. To learn more about this award, go to the Schools to Watch website.

Southeast Middle School To Watch: What’s That Mean?

Schools to Watch® is an initiative launched by the National Forum to Accelerate Middle-Grades Reform in student project1999.

The National Forum is an alliance of more than 60 educators, researchers, and officers of national associations and foundations dedicated to improving schools for young adolescents across the country. The National Forum’s mission is to unite key stakeholders to speak with a common voice to leverage research, policy, leadership, and replicable model practices to drive middle grades reform.

In order to prepare students to be lifelong learners ready for college, career, and citizenship, the National Forum seeks to make every middle grades school academically excellent, responsive to the developmental needs and interests of young adolescents, and socially equitable.

Through the Schools to Watch® initiative, the National Forum identifies schools across the United States that are well on their way to meeting the Forum’s criteria for high performance. Forum members believe that three things are true of high-performing middle-grades schools:

  • They are academically excellent—these schools challenge all students to use their minds well.
  • They are developmentally responsive—these schools are sensitive to the unique developmental challenges of early adolescence.
  • They are socially equitable—these schools are democratic and fair, providing every student with high-quality teachers, resources, and supports.
  • To achieve this level of performance, high-performing schools establish norms, structures, and organizational arrangements to support and sustain their trajectory toward excellence. They have a sense of purpose that drives every facet of practice and decision-making.
