Oklahoma Road Middle School has been selected as a 2011 National Blue Ribbon School.
The Blue Ribbon Schools Program honors public and private elementary, middle and high schools whose students achieve at very high levels or have made significant progress and helped close gaps in achievement, especially among disadvantaged and minority students. According to U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, “National Blue Ribbon Schools are committed to accelerating student achievement and preparing students for success in college and careers. Their success is an example for others to follow.”
Oklahoma Road Middle School will be honored at a conference and awards ceremony to be held November 14-15, 2011, in Washington, D.C.
