JES Earns Recognition as a 2023 Leader in Me Lighthouse Academic Honor Roll School

Jasper- Jasper Elementary School has earned recognition as a 2023 Leader in Me Lighthouse Academic Honor Roll school. 

Schools like JES serve as exemplars for Leader in Me Schools throughout the world. 

The Lighthouse Academic Honor Roll was created to recognize Leader in Me Schools that meet the rigorous requirements necessary to achieve and maintain Lighthouse School Certification as well as show exemplary academic growth or proficiency, as measured by state accountability standards.

A letter sent to Jasper Elementary School reads, “Lighthouse Academic Honor Roll is determined through the data analysis. To meet the academic proficiency standard, a school must be at or above the 85th percentile for the state’s combined proficient standards. To meet the academic growth standard, the school must be at or above the 50th percentile and have shown a 5 percent growth from the previous year’s percentile ranking. The percentile from Jasper Elementary rose in 2023 to 76% from 71% in 2022, an improvement of 5%, showing exemplary academic growth.”

“Jasper Elementary School is honored to receive this prestigious accolade,” said Ryan Erny, JES Assistant Principal. “Mr. Taylor and I are incredibly proud of our students and staff. They work hard each day. Without them, we would not receive this recognition.”
