Piney Ridge Elementary School has been selected as a 2008 National Blue Ribbon School by the U.S. Department of Education. The National Blue Ribbon Schools program recognizes schools that make significant progress in closing the achievement gap or whose students achieve at very high levels.
Six Maryland elementary schools were nominated for this honor. The schools recommended by the Maryland State Department of Education were selected on the basis of the following national criteria: assessment results and student achievement, curriculum and instruction, the professional development of teachers, and school leadership structure.
