Germantown Municipal School District announces four reward schools

Germantown, Tennessee—September 12,  2022—Germantown Municipal School District is proud of our students, school staff, families and community. This year, Dogwood Elementary, Farmington Elementary, Forest Hill Elementary School, and Houston High School have achieved the “Reward School” designations. 


Reward status is the top distinction a school can earn in Tennessee. It is the highest state accolade for a school based on student achievement, growth, and subgroup performance. Only a small percentage of schools in the state earned Reward status.


Today, we are celebrating that four schools have been recognized as reward schools.  “I am thankful for all of our hard-working educators, families, and students who achieved results.  We believe in maintaining student growth as well as high achievement, working to meet the needs of each student and providing the best educational experiences possible,” said Superintendent Jason Manuel.


The Germantown Municipal School District is a K-12 school system, located in the suburbs of Memphis, TN.  We opened our doors in the fall of 2014.  Our students are served by seven schools: three elementary schools, one K-8, one middle school, one high school, and one K-12 virtual school. Germantown Municipal School District has a long tradition of academic excellence, coupled with a strong commitment to continuous improvement. Whether improvement comes in the form of capital projects, expansion of course and curriculum offerings, or providing the best support for our exemplary teachers—we are dedicated to reinforcing the culture of excellence at each one of our seven schools. Student-focused and unique, each school offers families a rich, multi-faceted environment.
