FOX19 -

The U.S. Department of Education deemed seven Tri-State schools as 2015 National Blue Ribbon Schools for overall academic excellence and the exemplary high performance of its students.

Goshen High School, Lynchburg Clay Elementary, Ross High School and Wyoming High School were among those in Ohio to be honored.  Fourteen Ohio schools were recognized.

Beechwood Elementary School and Blessed Sacrament School in Fort Mitchell and St. Pius X Elementary School in Edgewood – are among the northern Kentucky schools honored this year. Eleven Kentucky schools were recognized.

The award is based on a school’s overall academic excellence or progress in closing achievement gaps among student subgroups. National Blue Ribbon Schools demonstrate that all students can achieve to high levels.

“This honor recognizes your students’ accomplishments and the hard work and dedication that went into their success,” U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan said in a video message. “Your journey has taught you collaboration, intentional instruction, and strong relationships in school and with your community. You represent excellence — in vision, in implementation, and in results — and we want to learn as much as we can from you.”

Duncan honored 335 schools all over the United States this year.  

In its 33-year history, the National Blue Ribbon Schools Program has given this coveted award to some 8,000 schools.
