Sep 25, 2013

Three Wyoming schools have received Blue Ribbon School Awards from the U.S. Department of Education. The awards honor high performing schools as well as schools that demonstrate the most improvement in student achievement. This year’s recipients are Jackson Hole High School, Lovell High School, and Coffeen Elementary School.

David Holbrook, of the Wyoming Department of Education, says it’s a great honor for these schools.

“In order to be a Blue Ribbon School in the categories that were named this year you have to be an exemplary, high performing school. Which means you have to have some of the top scores and be ranked as one of the top schools in the state-wise assessment in Wyoming,” says Holbrook.   

Two-hundred-eighty-six schools were honored nationwide.
