Basalt Middle School was recently selected as a finalist by the Colorado Association of Middle Level Educators (CAMLE) as a School to Watch. A national honor sponsored by the Middle Level Educators Association, each state is responsible to select high performing middle schools across the country that can then share their successful practices with others. In addition to making presentations around the state, Schools to Watch also holds a national convention in Washington, D.C., to recognize outstanding schools and outstanding educators.
Accordingly to Jeremy Voss, principal of Basalt Middle, “A group will be here for a site visit sometime in the coming weeks to learn about what we do well. If we win the distinction, BMS will get state and national level recognition for the awesome results our students have achieved.”
