Seaman Middle School Named School of Distinction
Posted on 06/14/2022
The Association for Middle Level Education (AMLE) has announced Seaman Middle School as the only Kansas school named to its inaugural AMLE Schools of Distinction.

This marks the inaugural year of the AMLE Schools of Distinction program, which is designed to both recognize exemplary schools and guide them through a process of strategic vision setting to help foster ongoing growth and success. “We look forward to celebrating these schools and all that makes the middle level special in the coming months,” said Stephanie Patton, Chair of the AMLE Schools of Distinction Committee.

Each recipient school completed a rigorous review process that measured their implementation of the characteristics of successful middle grades schools and continuous improvement plans. “I am so incredibly proud of the Seaman Middle School staff. They are consummate professionals who love our students, which was noted throughout the review,” said Seaman Middle School Principal Joshua Snyder. “Our school community is committed to providing middle school experiences that are intentional and evidenced-based. The four-month-long application included the perspectives of our parents, students, and staff. We are excited to be named one of the 12 AMLE school of distinction awardees.” AMLE will publish Seaman Middle School’s profile to promote and share its exemplary practices.

Seaman Middle School will be recognized and present on their exemplary practices live at the 49th Annual Conference for Middle Level Education this November.
