DPI: FIVE NC PUBLIC SCHOOLS RECEIVE NATIONAL BLUE RIBBONS

Congratulations to five public schools in North Carolina on receiving National Blue Ribbons.

From North Carolina Department of Public Instruction

"Five North Carolina public schools today were named 2014 National Blue Ribbon Schools by U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan. These schools are among 287 public and 50 private schools where students either achieve very high learning standards or are making notable improvements in closing the achievement gap. North Carolina public schools receiving this prestigious recognition are: Briarcliff Elementary, Wake County Public Schools; Caldwell Early College, Caldwell County Schools; Raleigh Charter, Wake County; Shoals Elementary, Surry County Schools; and West Elementary, Cleveland County Schools.

“These great schools are fulfilling the promise of American education—that all students, no matter their name or zip code, can flourish when schools provide safe, creative and challenging learning environments,” Secretary Duncan said. “National Blue Ribbon Schools are models of consistent excellence and a resource for other schools and districts. We celebrate them for their tireless effort and boundless creativity in reaching and teaching every student.”
