Blackboard Awards, Contributing Editor
This week we close our Blackboard Award special sections for 2011 with a look at some of the city"s best middle and high schools.
It is clear from our honorees that there are many different paths to education success. One principal (at Packer Collegiate) believes in order to maintain his educational â€œstreet cred, it is important to spend time teaching, while another (at the Telecommunication Arts High School) says that the most important thing he can do is support teachers. Some of our honored schools find that an emphasis on the arts (Mark Twain), science (Salk School of Science) or outdoor team projects (Gaynor McCown) is the key to their mission.
Blackboard Awards are Manhattan Media"s way of recognizing some of the great schools, principals and teachers in New York City. Editors with Our Town, West Side Spirit and New York Family consult with a team of education experts before making the selections.
We will be back in the spring with our annual salute to great teachers. To nominate a teacher or to find out more information, visit www.blackboardawards.com.
