WHY: The Blue Ribbon Schools Program is a national and state
program that recognizes and honors schools that exhibit high performance
and/or significant improvement in reading and mathematics achievement
as measured by Marylands assessments. Schools must meet rigorous
standards that were developed by the Maryland State Department of Education
and the U.S. Department of Education. These are schools that are extremely
high achievers in reading and mathematics. Only a limited number of
schools can be selected for the honor. The Maryland Blue Ribbon Schools
go on to compete for National Blue Ribbon Awards, which are announced
by the US Department of Education in September 2007.
