The International Center for Leadership in Education has named Huntington North High School as a Model School for 2018.

Huntington North is being recognized for its "future-focused approach and the implementation of a rigorous and relevant curriculum that challenges students to think beyond the classroom to solve real-world problems," the International Center said in a news release Tuesday.

Huntington North is one of 23 "innovative schools" that will share best practices at the International Center's 26th Annual Model Schools Conference that starts Sunday in Orlando and runs through June 27.

“We applaud these inspiring schools for persevering on a path to rapid improvement by creating a positive systemwide culture of high expectations and strong, positive relationships,” said Dr. Willard R. Daggett, founder and chairman of the International Center.

The Model Schools Conference is the country's largest event for rapidly improving K-12 schools and districts, according to the International Center, whose mission is to challenge and equip educators to "prepare students for lifelong success."

“We are humbled and excited to be selected as a Model School,” said Tiffanney Drummond, career and technical education director of Huntington North and the Learning Center.
