Van Buren Middle School recognized for inclusiveness

. May 1, 2017.

Searching for an exemplary model of inclusiveness in public schooling? Look no further than Van Buren Middle School. Their inclusiveness actually won them recognition from the Southern Poverty Law Center out of Montgomery, AL. The SPLC recognized 76 schools across the nation that demonstrated an active interest in inclusion and met criteria for designation as a Mix It Up Model School. The idea behind the Mix It Up program is to enable students to interact outside their comfort zones by encouraging them to interact with students outside their immediate social groups at lunch time. Congratulations to Van Buren Middle School for providing a shining example of promoting good humanity.
