A Model for Success: ACS Athens

By September 12, 2016December 30th, 2021No Comments
The American Community School (ACS) of Athens in Greece is one of the first Middle States member schools to achieve accreditation using the Sustaining Excellence Protocol.
The school community conducted research in seven focus areas, with the goal of improving student learning and creating engaged and caring global citizens who can contribute to the greater good of families, schools, communities, countries and the world.
Teachers and school leaders shared the results of their research during a highly successful two-day colloquium this past spring. In addition, 27 members of the professional staff used their action research as the basis for academic articles collected in the text Revolutionizing K-12 Blended Learning through the i²Flex Classroom Model, published in June, 2016.
