The U.S. Secretary of Education recognizes National Blue Ribbon Schools based on their overall academic excellence, or for making progress in improving student academic achievement levels. Created in 1982, the National Blue Ribbon Schools award honors public and private elementary, middle, and high schools where students perform at very high levels or where significant improvements are being made in students’ levels of achievement.
