AHS earns Momentum Award for the fourth time

The Ohio Department of Education has again named Anderson High School a recipient of the Momentum Award for exceeding expectations in student growth.

Anderson High School is the only high school in Hamilton County to receive this award four years in a row. AHS one of only three high schools in the county to earn the award for 2019.

"We are incredibly proud to have earned this distinction for the fourth consecutive year,” said Rob Fellows, principal. “Receiving the Momentum Award validates the focused academic efforts of our students and teachers as we strive toward our district's vision of success for all students."

To earn a Momentum Award, schools must earn straight A’s on all value-added measures on the report card. The school must have at least two value-added subgroups of students, which includes gifted, lowest 20% in achievement, and students with disabilities, according to the ODE.

“The students, teachers, administrators and staff honored today are shining examples to peers and colleagues around Ohio,” said State Board of Education President Laura Kohler. “We are so proud of these award recipients and the effort they put in to learning, leading and growing every day. We are both encouraged and challenged by the example of excellence they are setting.”

A total of 173 schools statewide earned the 2019 Momentum Award.
