Exemplary Labs Award

Creative Education Institute® (CEI®) truly appreciates everything our administrators and facilitators do to help their students become better learners. To show our appreciation and additional support of their efforts, we created the Exemplary Lab program.

To apply for Exemplary status, facilitators submit information to indicate how their lab is serving as an example for others to follow and provide evidence detailing how they consistently adhere to CEI’s recommended implementation of our programs. To be eligible for recognition, schools must maintain a full-service CEI Support Agreement, submit the Year Exemplary Lab’s DST:R or DST:M or some equivalent testing information to CEI, and record gains in test score averages.

Following are the labs that achieved Exemplary status for the 2016-2017 school year. We are very grateful for their efforts, and we commend the facilitators, principals and faculties at each of these campuses for the positive difference they are making in their students’ lives.
