NSES: 2021 National Blue Ribbon School
Posted on 09/23/2021
The U.S. Department of Education recognizes Northern Shores Elementary as a 2021 National Blue Ribbon School. 

U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel A. Cardona recognized 325 schools as National Blue Ribbon Schools for 2021 based on their overall academic excellence or progress in closing achievement gaps among student subgroups. These schools demonstrate that all students can achieve to high levels. Northern Shores Elementary is one of TWO schools selected in Hampton Roads!

“These schools epitomize the determination of our commonwealth’s public schools to maximize the potential of all students,” Superintendent of Public Instruction James Lane said. “I congratulate the success of the students and faculty at each of these schools and their unwavering commitment to excellence — even during the extraordinary circumstances of the last two years.” 

National Blue Ribbon Schools are selected based on two criteria: performance on state assessments or progress over five years closing achievement gaps.

Congratulations Dolphins!
