VES and VMS selected as A+ Schools of Excellence

We are excited and very proud to announce that two of our outstanding schools were recognized in May as being A+ Schools of Excellence! Both Verrado Elementary School and Verrado Middle School received this very distinctive honor.

A+ School of Excellence™ Program

The A+ School of Excellence™ Program is a comprehensive school assessment program that celebrates outstanding schools and brings to light the positive stories and successes happening in public schools every day.


  • Schools submit applications that provide demographic information, a description of current programs and practices, documentation of parent and community involvement, a profile of the school’s leadership and commitment to excellence, equity, service.
  • Schools must demonstrate sustained high achievement or significant improvement through assessment data.
  • Winning schools are recognized for their superior ability to identify and meet the academic and non-academic needs of their student population.
  • The selection panel includes award-winning principals, teachers and community leaders. Panel members conduct pre-arranged site visits to selected schools throughout the state in order to choose A+ School of Excellence™ award winners.
