Throughout the day, teachers, students and parents were interviewed on their experiences from PRHS as the campus was observed. The judges were given a list of students successes and achievements, college/career readiness, culture and climate of the campus and an exemplar program.

    I think everything posted was actually very reasonable. But, what about
    this? what if you added a little information? I am not suggesting your content
    is not solid, but what if you added a title that grabbed people’s attention? I mean PRHS
    validated for Gold Ribbon Status – Crimson Newsmagazine is kinda vanilla.
    You should look at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they
    write article headlines to get viewers to click.

    got to say. Just my opinion, it could bring your posts a little livelier.
