Virginia Colonial Forge High School, Stafford
Interactive technology helps kids perform well on the state's standardized tests. Students practice the tests on wireless laptops, workstations, and with handheld-response systems that enable a teacher to readily identify areas of weakness before the high-stakes testing.

Washington Wahluke High School, Mattawa 
Test scores for verbal skills were low. The school helped students improve their skills by placing them in English classes by ability level rather than grade level. Low-performing students received  twice-daily classes. Kids who needed extra help had evening classes where pizza was served.

West Virginia George Washington High School, Charleston 
The faculty concentrated on encouraging students to participate in Advance Placement (AP) classes. Their effort has helped lower college costs for students who pass the AP tests, since the kids receive college credit.  The number of students taking AP tests increased by 139 percent in four years.

Wisconsin Dodgeland High School, Juneau 
Alarming statistics about local students with poor nutritional habits prompted the school to implement a health and wellness initiative, "Commit to Be Fit." The school is designing an outdoor fitness trail to augment noon-hour intramural games and after-school fintness activities.

Wyoming Wheatland High School, Wheatland 
The school began the Freshman Success Program to ensure that all students achieve and graduate. Developed by teachers, the program features a team-building challenge course, extra study support, and parental outreach.  In its first year, freshman grade failures were reduced by 50 percent.
