2012O’Maley Middle School opened as a state-designated Innovation SchoolGovernment and Public Service, Education

The previous school year the school opened the Birdseye Hammond Science and Engineering Lab which became a catalyst towards being the state’s “innovation school.” The qualifications hold students more accountable for their grades and attendance, expand on project-based learning, offer teachers more autonomy and a say in what goes on in the classroom, and open up funding opportunities. The school’s five-year innovation plan called for the school to have an increased focus on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
