“I want to congratulate the students, parents, and educators at these nine high-performing schools for their dedication to excellence and for providing programs that will prepare their students to graduate ready for college and career. It truly is a great honor for a school to receive such national recognition for all the hard work that goes into education every day.

"While the National Blue Ribbon Schools Program emphasizes student achievement, it also recognizes leadership that clearly articulates goals and holds everyone to high standards. It rewards a partnership of families and educators who work together toward a shared vision.”

National Blue Ribbon Schools are honored at an annual awards ceremony in Washington, DC, where each receives a plaque and flag to signify its exemplary status. These schools serve as exemplars for other schools throughout the nation. Details of their achievements are provided on the U.S. Department of Education’s website.
