Values Driven Award of Excellence

CELEBRATION TIME!!! Hershey Public Schools received the Values Driven Award of Excellence from our accreditation organization Cognia this past week! The Values Driven Award of Excellence recognizes institutions who systematically and systemically model Cognia values through their day-to-day efforts to improve outcomes for their students. The entire PK-12 student body along with HPS staff members held a pep rally on Wednesday, January 24th to celebrate this tremendous award!!

The school's commitment to their mission, "Empowering all students to reach their full potential", provides multiple pathways for students to achieve success while providing a caring and supportive environment along the way.

Superintendent Jane Davis stated, “Hershey Public Schools, is committed to doing things to the best of our abilities, dedicating ourselves to constant improvement, and passionately striving to provide our students with the best education possible.  We are honored to have an incredible staff, student body, board, and community. It is through the support and teamwork of our Hershey staff that we can genuinely make a significant difference in the lives of our students."

We are excited that Cognia has chosen us for this award through our 2022-2023 school improvement accreditation cycle.

Board Members Amy Wolfskill, Steve Koch, Tim Berntson and Yvette Troyer along with Cognia Regional Director Shannon Vogler are honored at the ESU 15 and 16 board members event on Wednesday, January 24th.
