This is the image for the news article titled CMS Earns Top Ranking with Vocabulary.comEducators understand the importance of vocabulary knowledge. It is essential for success in reading. Students cannot understand what they read without understanding what most of the words mean. However, looking up the word in the dictionary often gives a very precise definition that could cause even a proficient adult reader difficulties deciphering. It takes using that word in context and in different situations to truly grasp the meaning of an unknown word. That is why Central Middle School students have been busy working on a new program called Vocabulary.com. This program is used by students all across the United States. The students can access the program from home or anywhere they have internet connection since it is web-based. When this past month’s rankings were published, Central Middle School was at the top! We scored 185th in All Schools in the United States, 7th in All Division III Middle School and Elementary, 10th in Virginia Schools, and 1st Place in Virginia Division III. This is a huge accomplishment as we are competing with schools from California, Ohio, Illinois, etc. As for the divisions in Virginia, we are scoring right up there with Chester, Midlothian, and Richmond City Schools. We look forward to continuing to use this program and move up in the ranks!
