WHES Named National School of Distinction 01/29/2019


Weddington Hills Elementary, an IB World School, has been named a National Magnet School of Distinction by Magnet Schools of America! Magnet Schools of America is the national association for magnet and theme-based schools.


To receive a national merit award, a school must submit a detailed application that is scored by a panel of educators. Schools are judged and scored on their demonstrated ability to raise student academic achievement, promote racial and socioeconomic diversity, provide integrated curricula and instruction, and create strong family and community partnerships that enhance the school’s magnet theme.


Congratulations, Wildcats!
