The students of Beverley Manor Elementary School in Staunton, VA, have been on our radar ever since the very first Skoolbo World Cup held in December 2014. They blasted onto the scene by placing 3rd overall in that inaugural competition, and have been a force to be reckoned with on the Skoolbo Leaderboards ever since.
This past month, the students once again came in 1st for Team USA in the international competition, with a 2nd place overall finish! We are so proud of the massive, school-wide effort put forth by the students, teachers, and principal, and we are so delighted to see their accomplishment recognized by their local media outlet WHSV Channel 3.
Check out this video clip from the interview!
According to the principal, here is the secret to their success:
“I think it’s our staff being so excited about it, and building the kids’ enthusiasm, and giving them an opportunity to feel success with something like that. Then that just builds upon itself.”

We have to agree that Beverley Manor’s consistently high performances and presence on the leaderboards speak to the wonderful leadership at the school. The coordinated efforts and enthusiasm at Beverley Manor Elementary can serve as an inspiration and blueprint to other schools just getting started with Skoolbo.
We look forward to seeing what wonderful things BMES can achieve in 2017!
