MALDEN – The Baker-Polito Administration today held a ceremony at the State House to recognize 51 schools for high achievement, narrowing achievement gaps between groups of students or making strong progress. The schools were recognized as 2016 National Blue Ribbon Schools, state-designated Commendation Schools or National Title I Distinguished Schools.
“I’m proud that our Massachusetts K—12 education system is one of the best in the country, and I thank the educators and communities across the Commonwealth who are leading the way and providing high-quality educational opportunities for their students every day,” said Governor Charlie Baker. “It’s an honor to recognize these schools, their students and their families for all of their success and hard work toward closing achievement gaps in Massachusetts.”
“It is a pleasure to recognize these high-performing schools from all corners of the Commonwealth,” said Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito. “Their communities should take great pride in their shared accomplishments, and we look forward to each school continuing to build upon their hard work in the future.”
