Worthy examples to emulate

I received an email yesterday with a link to the 50 Best Christian High Schools in the nation. As I reviewed this list, I considered the definition of “quality” that was used to compile the list. This included aspects such as the provision of learning support for academics, the emphasis on community service, fostering diversity and global awareness, the variety of extra-curricular experiences that students can have, and the integration of faith and learning as part of the learning experience.

My emphasis has consistently been on engaging students in their learning, equipping students for service, and empowering them to change the world. I believe this focus on students and their experience of school life is central to what we do. While I appreciated similar emphases from the list of schools, I cannot help but wonder how our model of school compares. I think we are off to a good start.
