Nice job Charlotte Wood Middle School! It may not be the newest facility in the area but it is what goes on inside that really matters. Very happy for staff, students and families.

Why wasn't Vista Grande on this list? Have they ever been on this list?

@Curious Mom - historical list of schools is public on the DOE website.

If your child goes to Vista Grande you probably know why they did not make it (i.e. the school is lacking in certain areas) if your child does not attend why do you care?

This year was middle and high schools so Vista Grande wasn't eligible.
