Congratulations to San Miguel Middle School in Washington, DC, for winning the Fight For Children Quality Schools Initiative Award of $100,000. The annual award recognizes a public school, a public charter school, and one independent school in the District of Columbia for institutional excellence. To qualify for the award, 40 percent of the school’s enrollment must come from low-income backgounds who demonstrate increasing student achievement.
“The money will aid us to expand our program from one section in each grade to two sections of 15
[in each class],” said Brother Francis Eells, principal of San Miguel Middle School. “This will eventually mean helping 90 boys in grades 6-8 from the original 45.”
