We’ve emptied barrels of ink over the years chronicling the athletic excellence at Tabb and Jamestown high schools, including Tabb’s boys state swim title and Jamestown’s boys soccer title during the 2011-12 school year. Today we congratulate everyone at the two schools for a job very well done academically.
HamptonRoads Magazine recognized Tabb as the No. 1 public high school in all of Hampton Roads in its Feb./March edition, with Jamestown No. 2. Four Bay Rivers District schools were ranked among the top 12, as Poquoson and Grafton received honorable mention.
Tabb was cited for its participation in the York County School of Arts and its Virtual Learning program that “blends online and offline learning experiences.” Jamestown received kudos for 63 percent of its 2012 graduates enrolling in four-year colleges or universities. Test scores, dropout rates and behavioral offenses factored into the magazine's rankings.
“Tabb students excel in a wide array of artistic, athletic and co-curricular activities as well as a rigorous curriculum that helps them thrive in college and beyond,” Tabb principal Angela Seiders said in the article.
Jamestown principal Catherine Worley said, “We are working on strategies to meet our school improvement goals which address high expectations and achievement for every student, community building and clear communication practices. It is exciting to see this work unfold. …”Copyright © 2015, Los Angeles Times
