Haysville Middle Named Capturing Kids’ Hearts National Showcase School.

Capturing Kids' Hearts

Haysville Middle School has once again been recognized by the Flippen Group to receive a Capturing Kids’ Hearts National Showcase SchoolsTM award for the 2018-2019 school year.

Through the Capturing Kids’ Hearts National Showcase Schools awards, the Flippen Group recognizes and celebrates campuses that go the extra mile each day, building an environment where students and staff feel safe and connected. Capturing Kids’ Hearts campuses across the country were considered for these awards based on the following criteria: 1) nomination based on observation by Flippen Group personnel, 2) level of implementation of Capturing Kids’ Hearts processes by all staff as measured by online surveys, and 3) data demonstrating that Capturing Kids’ Hearts has made a significant improvement in attendance, discipline, climate/culture, or academics.

A Flippen Group team visited each nominated campus to gather additional quantitative and qualitative data, and to interview students, teachers, administrators, and parents. They used a matrix of key measurements to gather information during the campus walk-through. Finally, an additional survey was conducted to collect feedback regarding the perceived climate and culture of the campus and its conduciveness to learning. Following this visit, the selection team reviewed all accumulated data and selected the campuses to receive the Capturing Kids’ Hearts National Showcase Schools awards.
