Greenbrier Public School’s (GPS) Eastside Elementary recently earned Highly Effective School Accreditation from Solution Tree, a professional development training platform, Eastside Assistant Principal Kristen Barnett told the Log Cabin Democrat.
The accreditation received in November came as Eastside maintained and grew in areas that have the greatest impact on students, Barnett’s news release read. Among these areas, it focuses on learning, building a collaborative culture and results orientation, among others.
According to the news release, Cameron L. Rains, vice president of Solution Tree Strategic Initiatives, said that schools receiving the platform’s accreditation must remain focused.
“In order to receive Accreditation for High Effective Schools, schools must have a laser-like focus on the things that really matter to our students,” Rains said. “We commend Greenbrier Eastside Elementary School for earning this designation and going above and beyond for the students they serve.”
Other GPS campuses also achieved Solution Tree accreditation, with Eastside being one of 11 schools in the state and 16 schools nationwide to receive it.
“This accreditation is a significant achievement that reflects Eastside’s commitment to reaching and maintaining the highest levels of educational quality,” the news release said.
