*Kernodle is a North Carolina School of Excellence from 2000-2008.
*The North Carolina Middle School Association has recognized Kernodle Middle School as a "School to Watch". John R. Kernodle, Jr. Middle is the first Guilford County school to receive this recognition.
The "Schools to Watch" program is an outgrowth of the national program launched in 1999 by the National Forum to Accelerate Middle-Grades Reform. This initiative sought to recognize schools that were performing in an exemplary fashion in the three core areas identified by the Forum as critical for high-performing schools. These core areas are academic excellence, developmental responsiveness, and social equity. In addition, the Forum recognized that organizational and support structures had to be in place to support these efforts. In 2002, the Forum selected three states to continue the program on the state level;
North Carolinawas one of those states. Since that time, nineteen middle level schools across the state have been recognized as "schools to watch".
