It is my pleasure to be the principal of one of the most amazing schools in DCSD and the state of Georgia. We opened our doors in 2008 with a long range goal to become a National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence. On September 30, 2014, Wadsworth Magnet School was named A U.S. Department of Education National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence for Exemplary High Performance. We have the highest GA Milestones and CCRPI scores in the metro area. Our student population is made up of gifted and high achieving learners. In order to best meet their needs, teachers utilize a differentiated instructional style that is rigorous and challenging. It includes in-depth content and complex levels of process and product. Teachers act as facilitators in our student centered classrooms and our leadership academy allows students to take ownership and responsibility for their own individual learning. We have 10 amazing outdoor veggie gardens in our courtyard as we are a designated Region Five STEM school. We have refocused our professional development to have a greater emphasis on science, technology, engineering and math. Our teachers attend regular training to extend our knowledge in designing and delivering rigorous STEM instructions. Through this collaboration strategies are put into practice designing cross curricular STEM activities for our special STEM enrichment days. Stop by and visit our vegetable gardens in the courtyard as we are gearing up for fall planting. We Are Wadsworth Magnet School and We Absolutely Rock!
