On Tuesday, March 7, 2017, Shades Valley High School received a site review from the SREB & Gates Foundation. The results of that visit were spectacular! The Review Team was impressed with our progress with LDC and MDC and even mentioned how they took note of the new teacher, Ms. Nonnemacher’s progress with LDC.  They loved how the academies were progressing and with the plans to market and grow the academies.  Gates team mentioned that Fowler’s freshman were not only well behaved but remained focused and were responsible to each other while she spoke with them. They loved the depth of learning with the freshman noting that wasn’t the class they wanted to see.   They were impressed with the students’ testimony on the readiness course during the debrief.  The review team was also very impressed with Mrs. Nidia Fernandez Lee’s students and their level of engagement and learning.  Furthermore, the Gates Foundation representatives were thoroughly pleased and pleasantly surprised with the number of rigorous courses offered to SVHS demographic.  Chuck Boyd with SREB said, “We provide training but teachers make it happen.” 

“Great job SVHS teachers! You are making it happen!” -- SVHS Principal, Dr. Antjuan Marsh
