    Congratulations to Brookwood Middle School on being named an A+ CollegeReady School of Excellence!

    This award is a result of the growth of the 8th grade class's scores on the PSAT 8/9 exam, administered in the Spring. Brookwood Middle is one of just seven middle schools in Alabama to receive the award this year.

    To earn this distinction, a school must improve its PSAT score by 50 points, over one year of participation in the A+ College Ready Middle School Training and Incentive Program. Brookwood Middle’s 8th grade class exceeded that requirement, improving its overall score by 66 points, well over the required 50 points!

    The Middle School Training and Incentive Program is modeled after A+ College Ready’s Advanced Placement Training and Incentive Program, which has increased student access and success in Advanced Placement math, science, English, social studies, and Computer Science in Alabama in the past decade. The middle school program includes educator training, equipment/materials, and teacher/student incentives for achievement and growth, as measured by the PSAT and the Alabama Comprehensive Assessment Program (ACAP).

    Congratulations to the students, teachers, and administrators who have worked hard to achieve these academic gains. We are proud of you!
