We are a Blue Ribbon School
U.S. Dept. of Education Blue Ribbon Award
St. Andrew Apostle School won the Blue Ribbon Award in 1989 and again in 2007.
“The Blue Ribbon Schools Program honors public and private elementary, middle, and high schools that are either high performing or have improved student achievement to high levels, especially among disadvantaged students. The program is part of a larger Department of Education effort to identify and disseminate knowledge about best school leadership and teaching practices. Each year since 1982, the U.S. Department of Education has sought out schools where students attain and maintain high academic goals, including those that beat the odds.” (http://www2.ed.gov/programs/nclbbrs/index.html)
