Rise Kohyang Middle School Recognized for High Achievement in Student Success

At Bright Star Schools, we’re thrilled to announce that Rise Kohyang Middle School (RKMS) has been selected as one of 1,866 public schools in California to receive the title of 2016 Honor Roll school.

The Honor Roll is part of a national effort to identify higher-performing schools and highlight successful practices that improve outcomes for students. Schools receiving this distinction from leaders in the California academic and business communities have demonstrated consistent high levels of student academic achievement, improvement in achievement levels over time and reduction in achievement gaps among student populations.

RKMS was awarded the “Star Schools” Award, given to schools with significant populations of socio-economically disadvantaged students that have shown a significant increase in grade-level proficiency over time. Additionally, RKMS received STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) Honor Roll recognition for having both high percentages of low-income students and high levels of math and science achievement.

As RKMS Founding Principal Eliza KimLy said, “We are proud that Rise Kohyang Middle School has received California Honor Roll designation as both a Star School and a STEM Honor Roll School. Our teachers and our team work hard to develop our students as scholars, leaders, and advocates. We are honored that our work and dedication are being recognized.

Congratulations Rise Kohyang Middle School students, teachers, and staff!
