U.S. Secretary of Education Margaret Spellings has named Bronxville Middle School as one of 320 Blue Ribbon Schools in 2008. The No Child Left Behind-Blue Ribbon Schools award distinguishes and honors schools for helping students achieve at very high levels and for making significant progress in closing the achievement gap.
For the past 26 years, this prestigious program has honored more than 5,800 of America's most successful schools.
The No Child Left Behind-Blue Ribbon Schools Program honors public and private elementary, middle and high schools that are either academically superior or that demonstrate dramatic gains in student achievement to high levels. Bronxville was nominated and selected based on its record of student achievement, scoring in the top 10 percent of New York's testing program.
The award reflects the culmination of a year-long application process, led by principal Barry Richelsoph. As he said in his message to staff, "You are a great staff, blessed with great kids in a great community, and I am a very proud principal."
