The Resolution Received from honorable Texas State Senator Borris Miles.

The Resolution received from honorable Texas State Senator Borris Miles. Diana Waters from the senator's office brought and presented the resolution to our campus.

“SST-Advancement’s motto is “Better Education, Better Future” where we prepare students with the 21st century skills and character for a lifetime of success. I am honored to receive this national designation on be behalf of our dedicated students, parents, staff, and community members. Earning the “National School of Character” designation was truly a team effort, and we appreciate the support of our stakeholders, parents, teachers, and most importantly our students.” says school Principal, Matt Dilli.
SST-Advancement is 1 of 14 Texas schools given this distinction. The school worked with the community to determine the core values they wanted to cultivate in students and incorporated them throughout every aspect of the school, from their logo to their curriculum focus and
programming efforts. After designated as State School of Character in February, 2019, SST Advancement continued to its journey to receive designation in Nationwide. Each year, Character.org certifies schools and districts at the state and national level that demonstrate a dedicated focus on character development, which has a positive effect on academic achievement, student behavior, and school climate. Criteria for the award selection are based on how schools and districts embody Character.org’s 11 Principles of Character, which include providing students with opportunities for moral action, fostering shared leadership, and engaging families and communities as partners in the
character-building effort.
