According to a news release today from Intel Corporation of Santa Clara, CA, Key Peninsula Middle School is being awarded one of Intel’s School of Distinction Awards for 2008. The Intel Corporation honors six schools each year with the Intel Schools of Distinction Award. Awards are presented to the top schools in the nation in the categories of science and math for elementary, middle/junior high, and high school.
…The annual awards recognize U.S. schools that implement innovative math and science programs and serve as role models for other schools. The Intel Foundation and sponsoring companies distribute $1 million in grants and awards to winning schools.
“Math and science skills are more important than ever, both to an individual’s success and our country,” said Brenda Musilli, Intel’s director of education. “Each winner of a 2008 Intel Schools of Distinction Award has demonstrated a successful commitment to math and science results. Not only do these schools offer solid curriculums and wonderful faculties, they succeed in integrating math and science throughout the curriculum so students constantly see ways to apply them.” One elementary, one middle and one high school are chosen as winners in each of the two categories from hundreds of applicants across the country (Intel).
