Show your community that something important is happening at your school—a new kind of welcoming process that extends beyond the building and into the homes of families who now feel prepared to help support their child’s success.
Become a National PTA School of Excellence! This recognition program supports and celebrates partnerships between PTAs and schools to enrich the educational experience and overall well-being of all students. Enroll at PTA.org/Excellence between now and October 1.
What does it take to be recognized as a National PTA School of Excellence?
By enrolling in this program, your PTA and school administrators are making a year-long commitment in identifying and implementing an action plan for school improvement based on PTA’s National Standards for Family-School Partnerships. Schools that exhibit improvement are honored as National PTA Schools of Excellence, a distinction that spans two years.
As a National PTA School of Excellence, your PTA and school will gain local, national and statewide recognition. On top of that, your PTA will be eligible to earn the Phoebe Apperson Hearst Award. This is National PTA’s highest honor recognizing effective family engagement strategies and includes a $2,000 grant.
