Oak Park High School has been selected as a Model School for 2018 by the International Center for Leadership in Education, whose mission is to challenge, inspire and equip today’s educators to prepare students for lifelong success. Oak Park is among one of the many chosen schools that will share best practices at the 26th Annual Model Schools Conference, June 24-27 in Orlando.
The Model Schools Conference is the nation’s premier event for rapidly improving K-12 schools and districts.
“We are proud to honor and showcase this future-focused school for implementing a rigorous and relevant curriculum that engages and challenges students to think beyond the classroom to solve real-world problems,” said Dr. Willard R. Daggett, Founder and Chairman of the International Center for Leadership in Education.
Model Schools are selected annually based on a number of criteria including substantive, data-validated growth year over year; evidence of a strong culture that puts students at the center of learning; and dedication to transforming instruction to meet the needs and demands of the future.
“This year, we will celebrate 26 years of empowering educators to implement effective best practices rooted in rigor, relevance, and relationships,” said Dr. Daggett. “At the Model School Conference, will have the unique opportunity to share inspiring ideas for innovating and transforming teaching and learning to better prepare students for the world in which they will work and live.”
Over the past 26 years, the Conference has attracted thousands of educators who come to learn about exemplary elementary, middle, and high schools.
