Michael C. Riley Elementary School is proud to have first received AdvancED STEM Certification in 2010 and recently passed reaccreditation through COGNIA in 2021.

COGNIA/ AdvancED STEM Certification is a mark of distinction and excellence that provides institutions and programs within institutions a research-based framework and criteria for awareness, continuous improvement and assessment of the quality, rigor, and substance of their STEM educational program.

AdvancEd has recently transitioned to COGNIA. This page serves as documentation of the evidence found through our school's recertification process with COGNIA during the 2021 recertification process.
