The CAMLE Board is proud to celebrate three schools who have been designated or redesignated in 2024 as a Colorado Trailblazer School to Watch: Lesher Middle School (Fort Collins), Milliken Middle School (Milliken), and SOROCO Middle School (Oak Creek).  These three schools applied through a written application and culminated with a school visit by Schools to Watch teams.  Each school is a model for middle level education, with innovative and exceptional practices that serve young adolescents in the best possible ways!

Eleven schools from across the state currently hold a Schools to Watch designation, based on four categories: Academic Excellence, Social Equity, Developmental Responsiveness, and Organizational Structure.  Middle schools designated as a School to Watch are honored annually at the Colorado Association of Middle Level Education (CAMLE) conference, as well as at the national Schools to Watch conference in Washington D.C. from the National Forum to Accelerate Middle Grades Reform.

The Schools to Watch schools demonstrate a trajectory of success and exhibit replicable practices for middle grades students.  This designation is a great way to increase collaboration and connection with other excellent middle schools in our state.  If you are interested in learning more about the Colorado Schools to Watch program, please visit the Schools to Watch section of the CAMLE website.
