Rock Hill School News For March 13, 2013 #rockhill #rockhillschools

Sunset Park Recognized by Gallup
The results of the Nov. 2012 Gallup Student Engagement Survey, administered to students in grades 5-12, were recently shared with the school board. Gallop believes that students work from a set of strengths—Hope, Engagement, and Well being—and these strengths are key factors that drive students’ grades, achievement scores, retention, and future employment.
Of the 1700 schools that participated in the poll, students in only 192 schools had a mean hope score of 4.53 or higher out of a possible 5, and Sunset Park Center for Accelerated Studies was one of them. By being a Gallup High Hope School, Sunset Park will receive 10 free Strengths Finder codes to share with the staff; leadership coaching from a Gallup educational consultant; and a teacher nominated by the principal will compete for the Most Hopeful Teacher in America Award. Hats off to the teachers and support staff at Sunset Park and especially the students!
