Northfield Middle High School (NMHS) has been accepted into the League of Innovative Schools and will be officially inducted into that New England wide organization on November 5th. In addition to Northfield there are five other Vermont High Schools joining the group: Bellows Falls Union High School, Colchester High School, Proctor High School, Randolph Union High School, and West Rutland High School.
The league of Innovative Schools, founded in 2011, is an organization with the goal of allowing schools to improve by using what are known as “Best Global Practices” in education. The League describes itself as “A regional professional learning community and membership is open any New England secondary school (including charter schools, private schools, and career-and-technical institutions) that are committed to Educational study, student-centered learning, and ongoing improvement.” All the participating schools become (according to the League) a part of a network of learning institutions working to strengthen their programs, exchange professional expertise, and create better learning opportunities for their students.
