Bluffton Elementary recognized with national award

Bluffton Elementary School is recognized as being one of the top schools in the nation by the United States Department of Education. 

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos announced the 349 schools that have been named a "National Blue Ribbon School". Bluffton Elementary is just one of sixteen schools in the State of Ohio to receive the honor. The Blue Ribbon School Award recognizes schools that perform high on assessment tests and does an excellent job of closing the achievement gaps between student groups and all students over the last five years. Representatives from the school have been invited to an awards ceremony in November. 

This is the 36th year the National Blue Ribbon School Awards has been given out.
