Southern High is this year’s winner of the Hubert B. Humphrey Jr. School Improvement Award. The award was announced today during a virtual State of Our Community event sponsored by the Greensboro Chamber of Commerce.
The Humphrey Award is based on 10 objective data-driven performance metrics that measure the progress each high school makes from year to year in areas such as End of Course proficiency, Advanced Placement exam participation, and graduation rates. This year, the committee chose to consider some additional criteria such as how the school indicated it might use award funds to serve diverse student populations during the COVID 19 pandemic. The committee also considered how the school proposed to engage community partners in doing so.
