School Recognition

The federally funded National Blue Ribbon Schools Program celebrates school excellence, turnaround stories, and closing student achievement gaps. 

Each year, the New Jersey Department of Education nominates public schools that meet the eligibility requirements provided by the U.S. Department of Education. Nominated schools are then invited to apply by the U.S. Department of Education.
