By enrolling in the National PTA School of Excellence program, we are making a year-long commitment to strengthening family-school partnerships at our school. With your feedback and in partnership with school administration, the NWHS PTA will form an Excellence Team to identify and implement an action plan for school improvement based on the National Standards for Family-School Partnerships and Four Principles for Transformative Family Engagement practices.


The School of Excellence Program aims to:

  • Provide a step-by-step framework to support PTAs in identifying and implementing best practices in family engagement.

  • Build inclusive and welcoming school communities to enrich the educational experience and overall well-being for all students.

  • Help attract new, action-oriented PTA members who want to focus on the issues that affect our children the most.

  • Provide networking and learning opportunities for PTAs to gain support, identify and reach goals and earn recognition.

  • Celebrate and open opportunities for designees and top Phoebe Apperson Hearst Awardees as national leaders in building effective family-school partnerships.
