NCUST is accepting applications for the 2018 America’s Best Urban Schools Award! Each year, NCUST awards a small number of schools that have achieved excellent academic results for all the populations they serve. This year, we are seeking applicants in five different award categories- elementary, middle, high, alternative, and dual-language schools. To simplify and improve the application process, we have five forms of the application- one for each category of school.
Download the application below and only apply in one award category. K-8 schools should use the middle school application; 6-12 schools should use the high school application. Dual language schools are a new award category for 2018, for this inaugural year, we are seeking only whole school program models. We ask that each district submit only five applications in total for consideration. NCUST looks forward to recognizing the nation’s very best urban schools across the country!

If you have any questions about the application or the application process, please email your questions to [email protected] or call 619-594-7905.

Completed applications are due by 5:00 pm Pacific Standard Time on Friday, December 1, 2017.
