Two Northeast Wisconsin schools are among five statewide to be named national Blue Ribbon schools by the U.S. Dept. of Education.
Suamico Elementary School in Suamico and Kohler High School in Kohler have received the honors. Schools in Muskego, Grafton and Dodgeville also were named to the list.
The Blue Ribbon Schools Program began in 1982. Officials say its goal is to recognize schools where leaders articulate a vision of excellence and stay involved in day-to-day learning, have high standards for teachers, students and administrators, diligently use data to adapt teaching and learning to support every student, and have a culture of mutual respect and trust. Each school applied for the honor and provided evidence of student academic achievement.
The award includes a plaque and flag signifying the school’s Blue Ribbon status. A principal and teacher are also invited to attend a November ceremony in Washington, D.C.
Nationwide, 286 schools were named Blue Ribbon schools.
