In addition, it was recognized for its strong leadership, devoted teachers, and commitment to assessment and accountability to bring about continuous improvement. </p><p>The campuses designated as "Schools to Watch" have demonstrated that high-performing middle grades schools have a clear focus on academic growth and achievement. They also recognize the importance of meeting the needs of all of their students and ensuring that each and every child has access to a rigorous, high-quality education. </p><p>Selection is based on a written application that required schools to show how they met criteria developed by the Forum.  Schools that appeared to meet the criteria were then visited by state teams who observed classrooms, interviewed administrators, teachers, students, and parents, and looked at achievement data, suspension rates, quality of lessons, and student work. Schools are recognized for a three-year period, and at the end of three years must repeat the process in order to be re-designated. The schools vary in size from several hundred to several thousand students and represent urban, suburban, and rural communities.</p><p>The other 2016 <strong>Texas Schools to Watch®</strong> campuses include:</p><ul><li>Crocket Intermediate School, Paris ISD</li></ul><ul><li>McMath Middle School, Denton ISD</li></ul><ul><li>Melissa Middle School, Melissa ISD</li></ul><ul><li>Scott Morgan Johnson Middle School, McKinney ISD</li></ul><ul><li>Sharyland North Junior High School, Sharyland ISD</li></ul><ul><li>Smithfield Middle School, Birdsville ISD</li></ul></div>
