Seven schools in Missouri are being honored by the U-S Department of Education as National Blue Ribbon Schools.
The program recognizes schools for outstanding achievement on English and math scores and graduation rates – or their performance at high academic levels while serving a significant proportion of disadvantaged students.
This year’s Blue Ribbon honorees are:
Blair Oaks Elementary in Wardsville
Chapel Lakes Elementary in Blue Springs
Dewey Elementary in Chillicothe
Epic Elementary in Liberty
Eugene Field Elementary in Webb City
Kirkwood Senior High
and Nixa High School.
These schools were also honored in April by the state as Missouri Gold Star Schools.
The 2022 National Blue Ribbon Schools award ceremony is November 3rd and 4th in Washington, D-C.
