Rock Ridge Named National Blue Ribbon School

U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan just announced that Rock Ridge Elementary is a 2015 National Blue Ribbon School based on their exemplary academic achievement! Rock Ridge is one of 335 schools nationwide receiving this amazing honor. 

 

“This honor recognizes your students’ accomplishments and the hard work and dedication that went into their success,” Duncan said in a video message to the awardees.  “Your journey has taught you collaboration, intentional instruction, and strong relationships in school and with your community. You represent excellence—in vision, in implementation, and in results—and we want to learn as much as we can from you.”

Rock Ridge will be honored at a recognition ceremony on Nov. 9-10 in Washington, D.C. In its 33-year history, the National Blue Ribbon Schools Program has bestowed this coveted award on more than 8,000 of America’s schools.  Hunt High was the last WCS school to receive this recognition - back in 1999-2000.
