Believing. Doing. Succeeding.

At Bruce Drysdale we use Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports (PBIS), to Care for S.O.L.E. (Self, Others, Learning, and Environment). PBIS is a framework we use to increase all students’ academic performance, improve safety, decrease problematic behavior, and establish a positive school culture.

Once again, we were awarded the 2015-2016 North Carolina PBIS Exemplar School award. This is the highest award given by the state. We earned this award by scoring 95% on our School-Wide Evaluation Tool Survey and by using data to document students’ improvement in behavior and academics.

There is always room for improvement as we strive to be the best that we can be. You can read our School Improvement Plan to see how we plan on increasing academic performance and our community.

Congratulations, Ileta Silvia!
