2018 SOD


Brewster Middle School was named a School of Distinction for the second year in a row, while Brewster High School received the award for the fourth time.

This award recognizes the top 5% of schools as the highest improving schools in Washington state and celebrate school staff, students and leaders who improve performance for all students over a sustained period of time in reading/English language arts and mathematics at the middle school level and graduation rates at the high school. The award recognizes the accomplishments of a dedicated and focused group of staff doing their best work for their students. Achieving the award requires continued, intentional effort from staff and school leaders.

The award is sponsored by the Center for Educational Effectiveness (CEE) in partnership with the Superintendents of the Educational Service Districts (AESD), the Washington State School Directors’ Association (WSSDA), the Washington Association of School Administrators (WASA), the Association of Washington School Principals (AWSP), the Washington State Association for Supervision of Curriculum Development (WSASCD). 

We are proud of all of our staff.  Administrators, office staff, counselors, all special program staff, teachers, para-educators, custodians, maintenance, food service, transportation and itinerant staff. Everyone plays a role in creating an atmosphere of learning, support and caring for our kids.

We are also proud of our students. They are encouraged to do their best, they are stretched out of their comfort zones to improve, and they are responding. 

Lastly, we are proud of our parents.  They trust us with their most prized possession to give them our best and they support their students and the district.
