Jenny Moreno is Principal at Hendersonville Middle School in the Henderson County School System. Her school was recognized as a “School to Watch” in North Carolina in 2010 by the National Forum to Accelerate Middle-Grades Reform (http://mgforum.org/). This Forum, made up of representatives from education research, nationwide educational and professional organizations, as well as professional educators, strives to engender high academic achievement and healthy development of adolescents. Each year, the Forum identifies through its statewide programs “Schools to Watch.” Jenny’s school, identified as such by the Forum, is one that promotes academic excellence, responds appropriately to the developmental needs of the students, and offers a truly democratic environment in which to learn.
