2020 Blue Ribbon Schools Named
Chicago Public Schools had six schools that were recently recognized as 2020 National Blue Ribbon Schools by the U.S. Department of Education. The six schools are among the 367 across the nation honored for their overall academic performance or progress in closing the achievement among student subgroups.
The National Blue Ribbon Schools Program honors public, private, and parochial schools in one of two performance categories:
- Exemplary High Performing Schools are among their state’s highest performing schools as measured by state assessments on nationally normed tests.
- Exemplary Achievement Gap Closing Schools are among their state’s highest performing schools in closing achievement gaps between a school’s subgroups and all students over the past five years.
