Jericho High School was recently named a Blue Ribbon School – only 325 schools received the honor nationally.

 

The recognition is based on a school’s overall academic performance or progress in closing achievement gaps among student subgroups and a school must be invited to apply for the recognition. 

 

Being selected as a Blue Ribbon school is a tremendous honor for Jericho High School,” said David Cohen, Co-Principal of Jericho High School. “This prestigious award and national recognition highlights the outstanding work of our students and faculty.”

 

“This year’s cohort of honorees demonstrates what is possible when committed educators and school leaders create vibrant, welcoming, and affirming school cultures where rich teaching and learning can flourish,” said U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona. “I commend this school and all our Blue Ribbon honorees for working to keep students healthy and safe while meeting their academic, social, emotional, and mental health needs. In the face of unprecedented circumstances, you found creative ways to engage, care for, protect, and teach our children. Blue Ribbon Schools have so much to offer and can serve as a model for other schools and communities so that we can truly build back better.”
