North Middle School and South Middle School have been recognized by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) as official as Gold Star No Place for Hate schools for the 2019–2020 school year.
This is the fourth consecutive year that both schools have earned this national designation for their commitment to providing a safe and inclusive learning environment for all students.
The No Place for Hate program provides a model for combating bullying, racism, and prejudice in schools.
To become a No Place for Hate school, schools need to form a committee to oversee and promote harmony and respect for differences, officially present the “Resolution for Respect,” and hold three or more activities during the year that celebrate diversity and promote respect.
Gold Star schools are recognized for hosting four or more activities.
