(HTMS) - It was officially announced this month that Hewitt-Trussville Middle School (HTMS) has been chosen to be part of the A+ College Ready Cohort 14. This exciting opportunity came about thanks to collaborative work from school and district personnel and included a virtual site with the staff from A+ College Ready. So what does this mean? HTMS will embark on a three-year relationship with A+ College Ready that will involve school-wide implementation involving comprehensive professional development and support for our staff throughout this process. HTMS will have a very focused approach on how to provide rigor and support for ALL students to prepare them to take higher level courses in high school. See more on this new accolade.  


  • We encourage you to visit the A+ College Ready website to better understand the vision and mission:
  • PSAT 8/9 will be given to 7th graders this spring to determine a baseline score to track overall progress through the first year of implementation. 
  • Teachers will have the opportunity to attend four days of E3 training this summer.
    • June 15-18 at Wetumpka High School
    • July 13-16 at Hewitt-Trussville High School
