Skyland Elementary wins National Blue Ribbon School Award

Skyland Elementary wins National Blue Ribbon School Award”

Three Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Washington were recognized by the U.S. Department of Education on September 28 as National Blue Ribbon Schools in recognition of their academic achievement as being among America's most successful schools.

It is the first Blue Ribbon designation in the 17-year history of Dove Science Academy in Oklahoma City, a public charter school that serves 500 students in grades six through twelve. Schools are selected for the prestigious award for overall academic excellence or their progress in closing the achievement gap.

McCall was named the top performing K-8 in Philadelphia by the school district past year. "This honor reflects the hard work, rigorous standards, and strong commitment of the educators, students and parents at these schools and in these communities".

More than 8,500 schools in the American states and territories, Department of Defense Education Activity and Bureau of Indian Education have received the honor in the past 35 years.

Mayor Kenney, Superintendent William R. Hite Jr., School Reform Commission Chair Joyce Wilkerson and others surprised teachers and students at the school on South 7th Street Thursday with a celebration.

"It is just an official endorsement of our efforts to promote college-bound education in our schools and promote college readiness at all levels", Alpaslan said.

"This is great for the community", McKenna said.

"I am very fortunate to be able to lead a school of teachers that are incredibly talented and highly motivated", McCoy told The Oklahoman.

"National Blue Ribbon Schools are active demonstrations of preparing every child for a bright future", Education Secretary Betsy DeVos said in a statement.

Alabama had no schools among the 30 nationwide that were recognized for closing achievement gaps this year.

The Blue Ribbon Schools program honors schools that are either high-performing or have closed achievement gaps, especially among minority or disadvantaged students.

Five Alabama schools are among the winners of the 2017 National Blue Ribbon for their exemplary performance on state assessments.
