Not until the tail end of the rally did teachers and students realize just how much they had to celebrate. That’s when it was announced that Timberlane Regional High School had been named the New Hampshire High School of the Year as part of the New Hampshire Excellence in Education Award, popularly known as the Edies.
The pep rally itself was an hour-long example of how much the students and staff at the school have achieved, as teachers and administrators recognized excellence in academics, athletics, and co-curricular clubs and organizations.
“The pep rally was just a facade,” said assistant principal Maria Di Nola. “The students didn’t know about it; the teachers didn’t know about it. This year is our year.”
What makes Timberlane a successful school, Weaver said, is not just the level of achievement reached by students and staff, but their willingness to make the high school an example for other schools to follow.
The awards for the outstanding elementary, middle, and secondary schools are determined by criteria developed by the New Hampshire Excellence in Education Awards board of directors and applied by selection committees composed of experienced New Hampshire educators and community leaders.
