I/S-Insufficient Sample 11/6/2014 N/C-Not CollectedN/R-Not ReportedN/AV-Not Available As one of the highest performing middle schools in South Carolina, Irmo Middle is a 13-time recipient of the Palmetto Gold Award for exemplary academic performance and improvement. Irmo Middle consistently proves that a school with supportive parents, hardworking students, and excellent teachers who regularly use research-based instructional strategies can produce outstanding results. In recognition of our excellence, we have again earned an “A” rating under the current federal accountability system and Excellent Absolute and Growth ratings on the state report card. These results continue to demonstrate that Irmo Middle remains one of the top performing schools in the state of South Carolina. We offer a wide range of high school credit courses in English, mathematics and world languages. Additionally, a significant percentage of our students excel in visual and performing arts through course offerings such as band, chorus, orchestra and dance. To infuse global cultures in all areas of our school, we offer more languages than many middle schools around (Spanish, French, German, and Mandarin Chinese). Along with course opportunities, students enrolled in fine arts courses regularly demonstrate their skill attainment through concerts, theatrical performances, dance recitals, and other school events that are designed to showcase their talents. In the arts, we routinely earn Superior ratings at many of the festivals and competitions, and these results validate the quality of our fine arts programs. Our students also continue to excel on high school readiness assessments. On the EXPLORE and PSAT assessments, record numbers of students met or exceeded performance benchmarks with several achieving perfect scores. This number has risen substantially over the past five years. We consider high school, college and career readiness to be critical next steps for our students. To ensure that they are ready, we have successfully transitioned into a whole-school International Academic Magnet and have officially become an Expeditionary Learning School. Our implementation of the International Academic Magnet with Expeditionary Learning as our pedagogical framework will provide opportunities for students to excel through project-based learning that capstones in experiences called learning expeditions. Each student will belong to a smaller subgroup to conduct field studies and action research in order to solve real-world problems, and inquiry-based learning will be facilitated by teachers through the state adopted standards. We are fortunate to have a high level of parental and community involvement. Our School Improvement Council and PTSO provide outstanding leadership and support, as well as help provide the future direction of our school. Finally, in order to sustain continued progress, we are continuing with several key school improvement initiatives that are designed to foster gains in student achievement; thus better preparing our students for high school, college and a globally competitive workforce. We are committed to taking on the challenges that face us, and it is with confidence that we commit to serving our students and community in providing the best educational opportunities possible. The outstanding support provided by our stakeholders is a critical factor in our continued success. Principal: Robert S.
