During the February 25th Yarmouth School Committee meeting Tara Maker (Apple Computer Representative) awarded HMS and YHS the Apple Distinguished School award. These two schools represent two of fifty-three schools nationwide that received this honor. Apple Distinguished Schools are recognized by Apple for their demonstrated success in implementing a 21st century learning environment. This learning environment manifests itself through visible “best practices” of visionary leadership, an IT infrastructure that supports learning, engaging teaching and learning methods, one-to-one mobile computer access for students and teachers, ongoing professional development, and systematic evaluation and assessment of their program.
