T4 Education developed and created the World’s Best School Prizes in 2022 and the winning categories including Community Collaboration, Environmental Action, Innovation, Overcoming Adversity, and Supporting Healthy Lives. These awards honor and celebrate schools from all over the world for the pivotal role they play in developing the next generation of learners and for their enormous contribution to society’s progress. The Prizes were established to share the best practices of schools that are transforming the lives of their students and making a real difference to their communities.
“The schools shortlisted for the World’s Best School Prizes, no matter where they can be found or what they teach, all have a few things in common – they all have a strong school culture and their leaders know how to attract and motivate exceptional educators, inspire change, and build excellent teaching and learning environments,” said Vikas Pota, Founder of T4 Education and the World’s Best School Prizes. “I must congratulate IMG Academy on being named in the Top 10 shortlists for the World’s Best School Prizes 2023 – many schools across the globe will learn from the story of this trailblazing Florida institution and the culture it has cultivated.”
