Front Mural at JEH

Reservoir Hill's own John Eager Howard School has been named National Title I Distinguished School for the 2012-2013 school year. 

The school will be honored by the U.S. Department of Education and the National Association of State Title I Directors in an upcoming ceremony in Nashville next month.

The Maryland Department of Education nominated one school after a thorough review of student achievement data based on the Maryland School Assessments. John Eager Howard had the highest score for Category 2—closing the achievement gap between student groups.
