On Thursday, September 28th, 2017 the U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos recognized schools as National Blue Ribbon Schools for 2017. The Academy of Our Lady of Peace in New Providence, NJ was recognized as a 2017 Blue Ribbon School of Excellence based on the school’s overall academic performance.
“National Blue Ribbon Schools are active demonstrations of preparing every child for a bright future,” said U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos to the honorees. “You are visionaries, innovators and leaders. You have much to teach us: some of you personalize student learning, others engage parents and communities in the work and life of your local schools and still others develop strong and forward-thinking leaders from among your teaching staff.”
The Academy of Our Lady of Peace has been awarded Blue Ribbon School status by the U.S. Department of Education based on their overall academic excellence.
The Blue Ribbon School award affirms the hard work of students, educators, families, and communities in creating a safe and welcoming school where students master challenging content. This prestigious award is given to a select number of private or public schools that exceed the criteria and represents exemplary teaching and learning.
