(NECN: Kenneth Craig, Worcester, Mass.) - Education reform was on Governor Deval Patrick's agenda as he made a stop at the University Park Campus School in Worcester, Massachusetts.

He highlighted some of the aspects of a reform bill that is making its way through Beacon Hill.

The governor's stop is part of a series of stops to promote the bill.

"It is an example of what can be and what we wish to see in every school in the Commonwealth," said Patrick on the University Park Campus School.

95% of students go on to college from this school.

Students say the secret behind the school's success is teachers who care and classrooms with the right tools.
