District Administrator has named Mount Airy City Schools as one of its inaugural Districts of Distinction for its innovative work in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics). District Administrator magazine is a national publication distributed to educational leaders around the country. The annual award was created to honor school districts that are leading the way with innovative ideas that improve student achievement and whose programs can be duplicated in other schools.
Dr. Greg Little stated, “We want our students to think critically, innovatively solve problems, be confident leaders and responsible citizens with a passion for learning. In short we want to create innovators. Our work with STEAM is designed to cultivate innovative thinking and social responsibility as students seek to make Mount Airy a better place to live.”
Mount Airy City Schools will be featured in the November issue of District Administrator magazine.
