Ascend Education announces Armuchee Middle School has received a 2019 Gold Medal. The award was established in 2010 to honor the schools or districts that best demonstrate a dedication to ensuring that all students become successful at math. The strategies employed by this year’s Gold Medal honorees made use of Ascend Math, an online individualized math instructional resource, to accelerate math learning and improve standardized test scores.
Armuchee Middle implemented Ascend Math with their special education students. The design of the program keeps students engaged as they move through lessons. “Ascend has allowed my small group of multi-age, multi-disability special needs students to pinpoint areas of instructional need while offering them skill level appropriate content.”
In his submission, Armuchee Middle’s Austin Goggans wrote, “Within only five months, my students have completed 81 objectives in Ascend Math.”
Goggans received a plaque commemorating their success. Armuchee Middle School will be featured on the Ascend Math website throughout the next year.
