Evanston Academy continues to shine this school year.
Cincinnati Public Schools is excited to announce the Ohio Department of Education has identified Evanston Academy as one of two schools in the state to be honored as a 2019 Distinguished School for its exceptional student performance for two or more consecutive years.
It is one of the highest honors given to a school for providing high-quality education to disadvantaged students, resulting in significant academic gains.
Evanston Academy is one of 100 schools throughout the country to earn the national honor for exceptional student achievement in 2019. "It is an honor to be selected for this award. I am proud of the Evanston Academy family. Bottom line, the staff at Evanston is unbelievable and I am proud to be a part of it," said Principal Stacey Hill-Simmons.
Evanston Academy, a neighborhood Vision 2020 school, earned an overall grade of an A on the 2019 Report Card released by the Ohio Department of Education. The school also earned an A in other components of the Report Card, Gap Closing and Achievement.
The school has an enrollment of 314 students, which includes its Early Childhood Education preschoolers.
Representatives from Evanston Academy will attend a national conference in February where they will be recognized as one of the two Ohio schools receiving this award.
