“I have been impressed with the positive changes I have seen over the past few years by the students and staff of Cottage Grove Middle School! I have seen students being more willing to work together and treating each other with respect, being inclusive and inviting new students into the school,” said Cottage Grove mayor Myron Bailey.

The Minnesota Schools of Character designation recognizes schools and/or districts that excel in exemplifying the 11 Principles of Effective Character Education and demonstrate outstanding initiatives yielding positive results in student behavior, school climate and academic performance. Synergy & Leadership Exchange sponsors the program in partnership with Character.org, a national nonprofit organization. Twenty schools and districts have been named either an Emerging, Honorable Mention or Minnesota School/District of Character since 2008.
