Delta High shows off for state school boards

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, WA- School boards across Washington State got a first-hand look at what's going right at Delta High School.

Members of the Washington State School Directors' Association Friday toured the math and science based school.

 The Delta students recently scored high marks in state-mandated testing, outperforming their other students statewide.

Richland Schools Superintendent Dr. Jim Busey says the report card is more confirmation that the school's curriculum could be a model for traditional public schools.

"The coordination between all the teachers. They do a lot of common planning. They have project-based learning. A lot of hands-on learning. They use a lot of the foundation's partners, the business community to come in and be guest speakers and teachers in the classroom."

 More than 200 students now attend Delta, and the school says it has already outgrown its building.

Educators are now looking for supporters to help find a bigger campus.
