Stadium Drive Elementary is among a select group of schools across the country to receive a National Blue Ribbon Award. It is one of only 349 Blue Ribbon Schools nationwide, and only 16 in the entire state of Ohio.
All schools are honored in one of two performance categories, based on all student scores, subgroup student scores and graduation rates: Stadium Elementary is an Exemplary High Performing School.
Exemplary High Performing Schools are among their state’s highest performing schools as measured by state assessments or nationally normed tests.
Exemplary Achievement Gap Closing Schools are among their state’s highest performing schools in closing achievement gaps between a school’s student groups and all students over the past five years.
On November 7-8, the Secretary and the Department of Education will celebrate with 300 public and 49 private school honorees at an awards ceremony in Washington, D.C. Principal Michael Zoccali will be there to officially accept the award on behalf of Stadium Drive.
