Monroe School in Hinsdale is being presented with the 2016 National Blue Ribbon Award! The honor is based either on a school’s overall academic excellence or the school’s progress in closing achievement gaps among student subgroups. For academic excellence, Monroe School has been selected as a 2016 National Blue Ribbon School! This prestigious Federal program was created over 30 years ago to honor schools achieving the highest levels of performance. The award is given to schools across the nation with student scores at exemplary levels (top 15%), or to schools which have made significant strides in closing the achievement gap.
McCleary Group is delighted to support Monroe! Megan McCleary has this to say about the honor, “As former Monroe School parents and we live in the Monroe School community, we understand the value and importance of the Blue Ribbon. Schools are one of the reasons people come to Hinsdale, so we wanted to support the exciting achievement.”
McCleary Group is the proud sponsor of the Monroe School Blue Ribbon celebrations taking place this week! Monroe joins Clarendon Hills Middle School (2009), Hinsdale Middle School (2009), Madison School (2009), The Lane School (2011) and Oak School (2014) as Blue Ribbon schools.
