Applause for teacher and students


To the Editor:

Congratulations to the entire eighth grade and Karl Nelson, their eighth grade science teacher, on bringing honor and distinction to the West Tisbury School.

The Boston Globe on September 15, 2010, ranked West Tisbury School’s Eighth Grade as among the “highest performers” in the entire state of Massachusetts on the MCAS (Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System) science test.

Results such as these are evidence of hard work, the ability to motivate students to learn, and commitment to excellence. We have here data on student performance of which we all can be proud. Congratulations to Karl Nelson and the students. They have earned all our applause.
