The success of students is Louise Jones's personal commitment as principal of George Washington Carver Elementary School. At a school specifically designed to improve racial integration, Ms. Jones has transformed a school beset with a multitude of problems into a model institution that won recognition as a California Distinguished School in 1989. In doing so, Ms. Jones established a number of academic programs to ensure her students' success, including programs to build self-esteem, establish language facility, and develop a model for cooperative learning. Setting high standards for academic performance and personal behavior, Ms. Jones emphasizes the importance of parent participation in their children's education.
