IHS Receives 2014 National Blue Ribbon Schools Distinction
On Tuesday, September 30, 2014, U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan recognized Ironton High School and 336 other schools across the United States as National Blue Ribbon Schools for 2014 based on their overall academic excellence or their progress in closing achievement gaps among student subgroups.

The U.S. Department of Education will honor Ironton High School and the other National Blue Ribbon Schools at a recognition ceremony on Nov. 10-11 in Washington, D.C.

“These great schools are fulfilling the promise of American education—that all students, no matter their name or zip code, can flourish when schools provide safe, creative, and challenging learning environments,” Secretary Duncan said. “National Blue Ribbon Schools are models of consistent excellence and a resource for other schools and districts. We celebrate them for their tireless effort and boundless creativity in reaching and teaching every student.”

The National Blue Ribbon Schools Program honors public and private elementary, middle, and high schools where students either achieve very high learning standards or are making notable improvements in closing the achievement gap. The award affirms the hard work of students, educators, families and communities in creating safe and welcoming schools where students master challenging content.

Congratulations to all students, staff, parents, and community members of Ironton City Schools.
