INDIANAPOLIS – Several Indiana schools are celebrating the title of being a “Blue Ribbon School” – a title that indicates they routinely exceed expectations and offer exceptional education to our state’s youth.

As we take pride in the schools that have been recognized as National Blue Ribbon Schools, let us also pay tribute to all the teachers, administrators and faculty around the state of Indiana who have done tremendous work in ensuring that our kids get the education they deserve.”
