The TSIN is proud of Hattie Cotton STEM Magnet Elementary for many reasons, one being their recent naming as a 2013 Magnet School of Distinction by Magnet Schools of America. Hattie Cotton is a STEM Platform school of the TSIN.
From the announcement at the MNPS Children First blog:
Elnora Mitchell-Furdge, Ed.S., Hattie Cotton’s principal, has led the school since 2011 after it became a science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) magnet school. Hattie Cotton is part of a STEM continuum that includes Bailey STEM Magnet Middle School and Stratford STEM Magnet High School. Under this leadership, the school earned the “Reward” school designation from the Tennessee Department of Education for ranking among the state’s top schools for growth in student achievement in 2012.
