Dunsworth and Billings have accomplished what has eluded others--they've clearly summarized the research buttressing 10 key indicators of successful schools and positioned each component summary next to a "how-to-do-it" rubric! What is more, it is not an overwhelming handbook, but, in fact, a "doable" roadmap for schools desiring to stay the course and change overtime. Professional learning communities can work from "The High-performing School" and make a difference!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

If ever there were a magic wand to expand upon the strengths and identify and correct the weaknesses of schools, this book is it. Dunsworth and Billings have researched the practices and ideas of the best and brightest among their education peers and have created a single reference that can provide positive results in the classroom.
This work contains all the reproducible tools and step by step processes school leaders need to assess the essential elements of their schools. My suggestion to those looking at this work - Buy it! Read it! Put it in practice in your school!
