Davenport MS/HS 2019 National Distinguished School
National ESEA Distinguished School

The National Association of ESEA State Program Administrators (NAESPA) is pleased to announce that Davenport MS/HS from Davenport, Washington has been named a National ESEA Distinguished School by the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction in Washington State. Davenport MS/HS is one of up to 100 schools throughout the country that is being nationally recognized for exceptional student achievement in 2019. A project of the NAESPA, the National ESEA Distinguished Schools Program publicly recognizes qualifying federally funded schools for the outstanding academic achievements of their students. It highlights the efforts of schools across the country making significant improvements for their students. The program has been in place since 1996, showcasing the success of hundreds of schools in one of three categories:

CATEGORY 1: Exceptional student performance and academic growth for two or more consecutive years

CATEGORY 2: Closing the achievement gap between student groups for two or more consecutive years

CATEGORY 3: Excellence in serving special populations of students (e.g. homeless, migrant, English learners, etc.)

Only two schools per state can be selected as a National ESEA Distinguished School each year, and because of that, this award is an especially prestigious honor for our school, staff and students.
