Two Wake schools earn Blue Ribbon status
Posted September 28
Two Wake County elementary schools are among the 329 recognized nationwide as 2016 National Blue Ribbon Schools.
The honor, announced by U.S. Secretary of Education John B. King, Jr., is based on student scores, graduation rates and a school's application.
In North Carolina, eight schools were recognized. Wake County's Davis Drive Elementary and Morrisville Elementary were recognized as Exemplary High Performing Schools: among the state's highest performing schools. The principals of each will get to go to Washington, D.C., for a ceremony, and the schools will hold local celebrations later in the year.
